"Do's & Don'ts" for Successful Implementation of Cycling Policies
This document presents the conclusions of the EU CHAMP project which ran from 2011-2014 and examined the implementation of cycling initiatives in 7 cities across Europe.
Why do some European cities have a much higher share of cycling compared to other cities with the same characteristics? This is one of the main questions the CHAMP project addressed. By looking at counterparts in Europe and analysing successes and failures, the CHAMP cities wanted to find ways to further upgrade and optimise their cycling policies as well ascollect new ideas for making the bike an even safer and more attractive transport mode.
Based on the wealth of experience gathered within the project, the CHAMP partners compiled 12 Cycling "Commandments" or recommendations to help other cities on the road to becoming a CHAMPion cycling city.
Contact details for the project are provided in the report.
