The Capital Region of Denmark has, as the only region in Denmark – maybe in the world – made an overall regional cycling survey. The survey shows that cycling is doing well and that there are still big differences between the central municipalities Copenhagen and Frederiksberg, the suburbs and the rural municipalities in the region.

The regional cycling survey of The Capital Region is unique

The Capital Region of Denmark is one of five regional authorities in Denmark. The region has a population of 1.7 million distributed across 28 municipalities, one of them being Copenhagen. The Capital Region of Denmark works to make it much easier for its citizens to go to work, school and sparetime activities without wasting unnecessary time in traffic, as well as making the citizens lead healthy, active lives.

The Capital Region of Denmark’s cycling survey 2016 is a follow-up to cycling survey from 2012, and the survey gives an overview of who cycles and who does not. It also shows how the cycling in the region has developed since 2007 in the central municipalities, the suburbs and the rural municipalities. The survey also provides new knowledge about the impact of cycling on health, climate, pollution and congestion.
