The last couple of years the city has worked with establishing commuter travel routes for cyclists on stretches in the city. These route specifically focus on getting people to use the bike on shorter commuter trips less than 5 km. On these routes the cyclists are provided with cycle barometers with information, signposting, automatic air pumps, and special measures to improve the free flow condition for cyclists like for instance segregated bicycle filter lanes.
