Cyclist Organizations’ Influence on Political Processes

Host: Danish Cyclists’ Federation, Copenhagen.

What role can civil society organizations play in the promotion of cycling. What are our merits and our challenges? The Danish Cyclists’ Federation was formed in 1905.

Copenhagen, City of cyclists

Host: Municipality of Copenhagen

The bicycle is the favorite mode of transport in Copenhagen because it is often the fastest and most convenient way to get around. But what has brought the City of Copenhagen to become one of the world’s leading cycling cities? And what challenges does Copenhagen have in common with many other large cities around the world, when it comes to ensuring safe and green mobility and a vibrant urban life for all? These are some of the questions that we answer in our presentation.

Due to time constrains and several requests for presentations each week we cannot accommodate all requests.

Duration: 45 min. – 1 hour

Bicycle Planning and Design

Host: Rambøll

Learn how Copenhagen copes with the challenge of the growing amount of cyclists – from planning to design. In recent years the amount of counter flow bike paths has been increased to allow an easier trip through the central part of the city that predominantly consists of one way streets. The lecture will focus on the planning and design of these as well as the overall planning of bicycle infrastructure in Copenhagen. Different design solutions will also be presented regarding bike flow and how to improve capacity on the bike paths.

Duration: 1,5 hours including Q&A

Planning for cyclists meets cultural entrepreneurship

Host: Rambøll

Do you want to know what really shifts the gears of urban cycling culture in Copenhagen? Join the lecture and hear about the cycling festivals, events, volunteering, innovation and social interaction on wheels – and how you can support it and makes it flourish. The lecture will focus on how planning for cyclists can work together with the cultural cycling entrepreneurs that every city has. In words, images and film we will present a case on a Copenhagen cycling festival where we will walk you through the do’s and don’ts of how to identify and join forces with volunteers, and how to communicate and engage with stakeholders towards a common goal through targeted communications.

Duration 1,5 hours including Q&A

Bicycle Planning in medium sized cities (50.000 – 260.000 inhabitant)

Host: Rambøll

This lecture will give you an insight into how a number of medium sized Danish cities have worked with increasing the number of cyclists. The lecture will give an insight in the various challenges and possibilities the medium sized cities face in order to improve bicycling facilities. For instance the cities experience an increase in car ownership, but on the other hand have good possibilities to use existing infrastructure for cyclists and the possibility to use and upgrade recreational routes. The lecture includes both examples of planning initiatives and specific solutions.
