WP4 report: Bike Infrastructures

A report from workpackage 1 -Bike Infrastructures – is now available.

The report presents a methodology and tools for mapping and evaluating the potential benefits of the implementation of bicycle infrastructure. The results will help to better understand what characteristics from a bicycle infrastructure are relevant to enhance cycling. Consequently, the findings will also help urban designers and planners to develop more effective bicycle infrastructures.

The site is now working, but some content is still missing

Dear Bikers, is still suffering from a resent  hacker attack.

We have now managed to stabilize and secure the site, but some content – that is all links to internal, uploaded material – are still out of order. Sorry.

External links work.

We are working to reestablish the internal links.

Cheers Hans

The Dutch Reference Study

The Netherlands have a tradition of high bicycle usage and a long history of research on effective policies for promoting cycling. This report discusses a number of Dutch case studies on the effects of investments in bicycle infrastructure. The reviewed studies include the three ‘classical’ cases in the 20th century: rather large investments in the cities of Tilburg, The Hague and Delft that were evaluated extensively by before and after studies. Other, smaller and more recent cases include the evaluation of shared space, a bicycle street, and interurban highways for cyclists. A general conclusion is that policies can be effective in sustaining high levels of cycling and strengthening cycling culture.
