THE IDEA BEHIND THE RIDE

Sustainable development is a concept that has been transforming cities and how their inhabitants lead their lives. The trend is aimed at improving the urban environment. It also requires investment in cycling infrastructure – and this not only involves the state but also private investors. To do this they have to create a friendly environment around their buildings that encourages office users to commute to work by bike. And what about the safety issues? Here are some of the topics we will be looking at:

  • Is the bicycle infrastructure safe for users, or is cycling around the city part a survival test?
  • What equipment is necessary? Working brakes, a bell, reflectors, a first aid kit?
  • I do/don’t wear a helmet when cycling* delete as appropriate
  • Do I feel safe on the cycle path?
  • The responsibilities and rights of the cycle path user.

Anyone can attend the meeting and everyone can speak. This year we would like to invite anyone interested in the discussion surrounding the safety of cycling infrastructure and contemporary road culture.

WHAT’S ON THE AGENDA?

  • starts on Thursday (May 23rd) at 16:30
  • several starting points at selected office buildings and with various routes
  • bicycles for the participants will be provided at the starting points. Participants can also come on their own bikes
  • the organiser will provide each group with a designated guide
  • along the route the participants will stop at several places to discuss architectural and spatial issues, mainly those related to traffic safety
  • the ride will finish with a meeting in an informal atmosphere and involving discussions on topics related to the safety of the cycling infrastructure and road culture as a whole. Our conclusions will be informed by the observations we have made during the ride.
