This class examines the best ways a city can encourage and accommodate bicycle traffic in the present and future. The course uses Copenhagen as the main case study and examines how a city can integrate bicycling into urban planning and design. We look into the spatial components of creating a bikeable city, effects of bike use on health and environment, policies for developing bicycle infrastructure and programs, best practices in bicycle facility design and implementation, and implementing bicycle policies and plans in education, registration, finance, political, and public acceptance.
