We are not willing to start an unproductive debate about this issue, but we have to admit that the use of bicycles in cities is getting bigger and bigger although cycling is treated differently in each culture.
“Copenhagenize Design Co” has recently published a report analyzing different cities in the world according to the level of bicycle usage taking into account twelve indicators: promotion, bicycle culture, bicycle infrastructure, bicycle facilities, public programs for bike loan, gender, safety, politics, social acceptance, urban planning, traffic contention and share of displacements. This ranking represents a valuable information tool to know the current situation of bicycle usage in different cities around the globe.
The highest positions were awarded to:
1. Amsterdam (The Netherlands)
2. Copenhagen (Denmark)
3. Utrecht (The Netherlands)
4. Seville (Spain) and Bordeaux (France)
5. Nantes (France) and Antwerp (Belgium)
6. Eindhoven (The Netherlands)
7. Malmö (Sweden)
8. Berlin (Germany)
9. Dublin (Republic of Ireland)
10. Tokyo (Japan)
