How do you create a cycling city?

Host: Moving Spaces

To answer this question, we must look at Copenhagen’s past, present and future. We look at crucial causes and solutions for how Copenhagen has achieved half of all trips to education and work today – going by bicycle (49%). This is an interplay between urban planning, political conditions, documentation, architecture, collaboration and much more! Lasse clarifies the multifaceted Diamond cycling is for Copenhagen and why the rest of the world can learn from it.

 

 

Increasing cycling in hilly cities 

Host: City of Aarhus 
Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark. In 2009, the City Council funded 10 million € to show new ways to increase the bicycle use in the municipality. In 2009-2016, Aarhus introduced a totally new approach to encourage cycling via a combination of good campaigns, ITS, new infrastructure, new innovative approaches on city planning, design measures, bike theft measures, parking facilities, Cycle Super Highways, cleaning and maintenance of bike paths and intermodality measures. The result is a stunning 24% increase – the biggest increase ever measured in a municipality in Denmark.


Cyclist Organizations’ Influence on Political Processes

Host: Danish Cyclists’ Federation
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. For over 100 years we have been fighting for the rights of Danish cyclists to ensure safe conditions for the current and coming generations of cyclists.

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 answered in this presentation.

Bicycle Planning and Design

Host: Rambøll
From planning to design – how Copenhagen copes with the challenge of the growing amount of cyclists. 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. Focus was on the planning and design of these as well as the overall planning of bicycle infrastructure in Copenhagen. Different design solutions was also presented regarding bike flow and how to improve capacity on the bike paths.

The healthy city

Host: Moving Spaces

This tour focuses on the health solutions cycling provides. How to tackle obesity and how urban planning and concrete solutions provides the answer to the health crisis many countries and cities face. How to squeeze in that exercise and what are the emerging trends we see to stay healthy in a busy everyday life?     

Planning for cyclists meets cultural entrepreneurship

Host: Rambøll
A lecture on what really shifts the gears of urban cycling culture in Copenhagen. Participants heard about the cycling festivals, events, volunteering, innovation and social interaction on wheels – and how to support it and makes it flourish. Focus was on how planning for cyclists can work together with the cultural cycling entrepreneurs that every city has. In words, images and film we presented a case on a Copenhagen cycling festival where we walked participants 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.

Kids biking to school

Host: Rambøll
An important focus for bicycle planning is to secure that the next generation of cyclists are created. Focus was at the strategic important work with getting school children to bike to school. The lecture included examples of the work with securing safe and secure school roads, the work with changing the habitats among children and parents through school traffic policies and campaigns.

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

Host: Rambøll 
The lecture gave participants an insight into how a number of medium sized Danish cities have worked with increasing the number of cyclists. It gives 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 included both examples of planning initiatives and specific solutions.
