Past event

Denmark, and especially Copenhagen, is known for it's many cyclists and iconic infrastructure for cyclists.

Between 2-4 May 2022, you can go and visit Copenhagen and take part in a high quality two-day programme where you can learn you a lot about planning and promotion of cycling in Denmark.

Besides several bicycle excursions (including trips on bicycle super highways (supercykelstier) and trips where cycling is combined with public transport) the study trip will include lectures about Copenhagen and a suburb of Copenhagen. Planning issues as well as the role of politicians and NGO's will also be covered. There will be plenty of opportunities for informal discussions.

Speakers (to be confirmed) are the head of Bicycle Program at the City of Copenhagen , Sidsel Birk Hjuler, manager of projekt Supercykelstier (Cycle Superhighways) and Morten Kabell, former Mayor for Technical and Environmental Affairs in Copenhagen.

The target group of the study trip is planners, policy makers, politicians and NGO representatives. The only requirements for participation is an interest in the issue and the ability to cycle.

The study trip starts with a get-together on Monday 2 May in the evening, followed by two full days ending at Wednesday 4 May at 17:00 CET. You can find a detailed program of a previous event here.

A lot of things can be done via computers and virtual meetings, but experiencing bicycle traffic in practise can't.
