B2: Towards the cycling city – is the first step really (that) hard? (German/English)
When we think of a cycling city, we automatically think of cities such as Copenhagen, Utrecht or Münster. But in the shadow of the well-known pioneers, numerous large and small cities, towns and municipalities have set out to establish the cycle as a means of transport. It is these “climbers” from which local authorities can learn when they are still right at the beginning and do not know where to start. Representatives from three successful cities will talk about the path followed by their local community towards becoming a cycling city. This will be a forum on successes and failures, smart priorities, skilful networking as well as the many small and large local levers. A source of inspiration and a confidence booster for all towns and cities that want be become a cycling city themselves.
