How and what to prioritize when planning for cycling? Danish and Dutch examples from Copenhagen and Utrecht


Cycling for transportation has been on a rise for years now in many cities, but because of COVID-19 and limited capacity in public transportation cities around the World are implementing cycling infrastructure with rapid speed. These initiatives have been supported with other measures like vouchers for bike repair or cycling training. In total, €1 billion has been allocated for cycling in Europe alone due to COVID-19.

The result is that cycling is booming. But how do cities that have been planning for cycling for decades plan for cycling?a

The webinar, which is being organised by Ramboll Smart Mobility, will see Marie Kåstrup, from City of Copenhagen in Denmark and Herbert Tiemens from the Dutch city Utrecht share how and what their cities prioritize when investing in cycling. Copenhagen is one of Handshake's three "Cycling Capitals".

Ramboll will also share how its modeling tool “Brutus”, which has been developed in corporation with Utrecht, can support the decision-making process.

The webinar is free. A link to a recording will be sent to all who signed up afterwards: Sign up here.
