Infrastructure and Services
Cycle parking is the most popular solution Handshake for cities to learn about and transfer. Done well, it is a part of a city's standard infrastructure and can even add to its identity. Done poorly, it can contribute to inaccessibility, cycle theft and overcrowding. All cities need to prepare for increasing rates of cycling - and even leading cities like Copenhagen can learn from how high volume cycle parking is provided in Amsterdam.
Bigger and better integrated cycle storage
Many Handshake future cycling capitals will learn to create large scale cycling parking areas and integrate them with other modes of transport including the walking environment. Our leading cities will further develop ideas about "flexible" cycle parking areas and better integrating them into public space, with overall reductions in space for car parking.
