Good practices

Good practices

The main objective of Cyclecities is to enable members of local authorities in Europe to proceed as dynamically and efficiently as possible, with the issues of the bike. To achieve it is essential to acquire knowledge about good practices, but also to possess a methodology which firstly will allow them to identify and collect this knowledge and secondly to adjust the experience of these data in their own city. The following methodologies are therefore, put at the disposal of the local government executives and those citizens who have a desire to influence and participate in planning in order to gather the most successful practices, evaluate and gain from them what more for their land. It should be noted that the following material is not only adressed to the members of the consortium “Cyclecities” but is available to all those who work for the cities of Europe designing projects and policies for the bike.

Methodology to collect & identify Good Practices on land use planning

The methodology sets the basis for identifying 10 good practices and for developing a good practice guide on land use planning integrating cycling in urban mobility management schemes. This methodology initially envisages at first the collection of a large number of good practices and secondly, after evaluation, the analysis of the best of them through interviews with key actors. The objective of this research is to draw up a mobility management policies guide which will include solutions on land use planning which will enable the increase of the bicycle use.

Methodology to collect & identify Good Practices on mobility management strategies

This is a three step methodology: the identification, recording and evaluating good practices. A large number of good practices will be collected and evaluated after a desk research. The best of them will be thoroughly examined through contacts and interviews with the main contributors. The methodology sets the basis for identifying 20 good practice cases in order to develop a good practice guide on successful mobility management strategies for cycling in Europe. The aim of collecting GPs is to disseminate the experience that has been gained during planning and implementation in order to promote cycling as a safe, highly efficient daily transport mode.

Methodology to collect & identify Good Practices on cities’ participation strategies for reshaping urban mobility

The methodology sets the basis for identifying 10 good practices in order to develop a good practice guide on participation strategies of territorial administrations in reshaping urban mobility in Europe. The methodology includes desk research and contacts with stakeholders of the more promising applications. The guide aims to integrate public participation into sustainable mobility planning.

Methodology to collect data on existing cities’ bike sharing systems

This methodology, including desk research and interviews, is used to collect data and case study evidence through a survey of existing bike sharing systems in European cities. Views of the decision makers and experts involved in planning and operation of these systems will be recorded and examined.
Facts and figures on 50-70 bike sharing systems of small, medium and large sized European cities are going to be collected and 20-30 cases will be further explored. They will be analyzed in respect of their impact and effectiveness in urban mobility. The aim of the above Good Practice collection is to produce a guide presenting the gained experience and best solutions for planning such systems.

Methodology to collect & identify Good Practices on cycling infrastructures’ architectural designs

Data on facts and figures of best cases as well as evidence on the effectiveness, impact and transferability of cycling infrastructures’ architectural designs will be collected. The aim is to produce insights on how cycle-friendly infrastructures in terms of architectural design enhance cycling experience and consequently promote cycling adoption in urban settings, what are the best, recent examples on this field and what are the decisive influential factors contributing to modal change in favor of cycling.
A taxonomy scheme for cycling infrastructures’ architectural design cases is proposed consisting of four main categories of cycling infrastructure, namely (a) network links/cycle paths, (b) bicycle parking/storage, (c) cycling and public transport, (d) intersections and crossings. The cases are also categorized based on their intended impact: a) safety, b) directness, c) cohesion, (d) attractiveness and (e) comfort.
