Copenhagen 1:1

Host: Danish Cyclists’ Federation
What makes Copenhagen’s bicycle culture so special? What makes the Copenhageners bike so much? Participants joined us on a ride through our capital and became part of Copenhagen’s famous bicycle culture themselves. We took participants through our favorite cycle streets and showed them what makes Copenhagen’s bicycle infrastructure work.

Master planning and citizen participation – on wheels

Host: Rambøll
This guided bike tour focused on the urban master planning of Copenhagen and how citizen participation is an integrated part of urban renewal and development. It guides participants through large, medium and small projects where they learn how citizens were engaged and how their ideas were brought to life. The tour took participants from the most urban inner setting through the city to the buzzing and ever changing areas of Nørrebro and Vesterbro – with an added bonus of a constant show & tell about the layout of the Copenhagen bike lane and path grid.

ITS, flow and infrastructure

Host: Rambøll
Copenhagen has developed its bicycle infrastructure in order to cope with the increasing amount of bicyclists. From complete street refurbishment to lane markings and ITS, the guided bike tour guided participants through one of the most cyclist busy streets in the world. The tour show participants different measures on how to improve the traffic flow on bike lanes, how to adapt the speed of cyclists in green waves and some of the many service features that improves the life for the daily commuters.

Bicycle parking – A lot of bikes need a lot of places to park

Host: HOE360 Consulting
Each Copenhagener has at least one bicycle and they don’t ride on them all the time – So it leads to parked bicycles. On the guided bike tour the participants looked at examples such as: space allocation, capacity, design, functionality, accessibility, flexible- and temporary use of space, amenity, storage & theft prevention. Get more people riding – get more parked bicycles. It’s not a problem, but it sure is a challenge.

The Green connection

Host: Rambøll
On this guided bike tour participants experienced the green connections through the city and some of the different oases where bicyclists and pedestrians co-exist. Participants were shown how Copenhagen have spent a lot of effort to integrate cycling as the preferred means of transport by building bicycle bridges over the harbor, using old railway corridors as bicycle highways and sites where landscape architecture has integrated the use of bicycles.

Good City life by bicycle – creating liveable cities

Host: HOE360 Consulting
Participants had a live tour of the 2014 keynote speak from the Velo-city conference. They rode to locations mentioned in the keynote, and were shown the influence the initiatives have on good city life, and how it contributes to creating economic wellbeing for the local business. they stopped to observe and discuss several locations with concrete examples of cycling planning and infrastructure. The tour was flavoured with personal anecdotes from 10+ years of working with bicycling.

Did HC Andersen ride a bike?

Host: City of Odense
The answer to the question above is no. But today the bicycle has become a new fairytale for Odense. Every fourth trip is done by bike and 80 % of all school children either walk or cycle to school. Today cycling is integrated in the city’s overall policies and it is an essential part of city planning. Odense has won prices for both infrastructure and campaigns. The cycle barometer, green waves and super cycle highways were all invented here.

Tour around Randers City center and Hornbæk

Host: City of Randers
In Hornbæk participants had a look at the physical means to promote cycling, such as two-way bicycle paths, bicycle parking and traffic calming measures at the school. They used the alternative route between the Hornbæk and Randers city center and rode on the new bicycle ramp. They rode the cycling ring in the center of Randers, and saw what changes that have happened to make it easier, more accessible and safe to be a cyclist in the city. Finally, they had a look at the locked and covered bicycle parking in the pedestrian areas and at the bus terminal.
