Bicycling contributes to the city's development

The well-developed bicycle traffic in the city creates numerous benefits for the city as a whole, as well as for its residents and business in particular.

Advantages bicycle transport

Bicycle makes cities cleaner and healthier. It emits no emissions and noises, and thanks to daily moderate exercise, people who cycle regularly become healthier. The use of a bicycle has the effect of reducing the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal disorders. All this benefits all residents of the city.

Bicycle development makes cities safer and more comfortable to live in

The car may still be a status symbol for many, but residents of European cities are increasingly aware of improving the quality of life in their area by reducing and slowing traffic. Where the speed of cars is limited to 30 km / h for the safety of cyclists, or where part of the street space (cycle path or cycle lane) is separated for cyclists, the number and speed of cars is reduced. Studies show that the principle of "security in
number »works: the risk of an accident is lower in cities with more residents
used for walking or biking.

Bicycle contributes to economic development

In the simplest sense, the cost of cycling infrastructure is offset by the savings on road transport. Considering the health and safety of car maintenance, cycling infrastructure pays for itself at least 4-5 times in 10 years of operation. To build a bicycle parking space, you need 5% of the amount needed for one car parking space. The bike also enhances the competitiveness of the shopping areas in the city center and within walking distance. Cyclists are more regular and regular customers of nearby shops, while motorists prefer large suburban shopping centers. Cycling is becoming an increasingly important argument in urban marketing. The city of cyclists attracts intellectuals and creative workers.

Bicycle promotes the tourism industry

This transport is becoming more and more attractive to city guests and tourists alike. It's a convenient and enjoyable way to get around the city faster than walking distance, but slow enough and open enough to see everything, it's flexible and autonomous.

Bicycle development is about raising social standards
city ​​mobility

As energy prices go up, road trips become more expensive and less affordable. Today, most citizens cannot afford to travel by private car at any time: either for economic reasons, or due to age restrictions, or simply because another car is used by another family member. For them, bicycle is a cheap addition to public transport, which greatly expands their ability to move and, as a consequence, to work, study, culture or relax. Children, students, pensioners and the poor are especially benefited. The bike fits into the social inclusion policy as a transport for all.
