If bikes ruled the world
Amsterdam likes to think of itself as the bicycle capital of the world. However, this position has been under scrutiny. In Europe there are several rivals in the field. Since last year Copenhagen has beaten Amsterdam as ‘the most cycle-friendly city of the world’. With an investment of £770 million on cycling initiatives, the mayor of London is placing the British capital on the map. This edition of Bike & City we will look at the role and place for cyclists in European urban space. What can cities learn from each other in terms of using public space? What are the different strategies of these cities?
Amsterdam, Copenhagen en London are cycling cities, however, all three in a different fashion. The cities have their own way of using public space, in which cyclists get a different role and place. This Bike & City we are touring through Europe’s different cities and perspectives to find out.
