  1. Poll: The difference between "Amsterdam" and...

    The difference between "Amsterdam" and "Copenhagen", as in "city", to "Netherlands" and "Denmark", as in "country" maybe.

    My source was ETSC Data. Yep the countries rank high. others, like the UK,...
  2. Poll: Claiming that Infrastructure is responsible for...

    Claiming that Infrastructure is responsible for this is maybe ignoring another reality. There is good data proving that cycling gets safer the more people do it. That infrastructure is the main...
  3. Poll: Yes, they are. I could post worse examples....

    Yes, they are.


    I could post worse examples. Funny thing is, they look strikingly similar to some projects hailed by cycling advocates in UK and elsewhere - narrow cycling canyons with high...

    I don't have data on this one. Not every streets data is publically available, i don't know what road that is in the media picture. But i can give you another example. "Seidelstrasse, Munich. One of...

    Herne (westphalia/DE) reduces "protected" bike lanes in favor of bike lanes on the road since 2007.

  9. Poll: Well if 37% ride a bike, but they make for 50% of...

    Well if 37% ride a bike, but they make for 50% of the traffic victims, something is wrong. Usually, injury rate *drops* the more cyclists there are. Munich, for example, which rebuilds so-called...
  10. Poll: Using "per ml travelled" is problematic, and...

    Using "per ml travelled" is problematic, and comparing countries and then looking only at bike infrastructure for a reason is misleading.
    France, for example, has next to no cycling infrastructure....

    Evidence for the opposite exists.


    I'm not focussing on making interceptions safer. For example, speed reduction is a hugely effective measure, see recent development in NYC.

    Safer traffic is...

    Ye well, its not only cyclists that die. In Netherlands and elswehere, sometimes when cyclists meet cyclists, cyclists die. Car drivers and pedestrians die, too. So what do we do, buid "segregated...
  13. Poll: The dutch managed to beat the threshold - there...

    The dutch managed to beat the threshold - there simply is so much bicycle traffic and so few cars that relatively few grave accidents between these two happen. Also, dutch car drivers have learned to...

    Meanwhile, on a "segregated bike path"

    I have no idea what "MUPS" is, tbh. And i'd like to see the "portected bike lane" with absolutely no interference or touch point with other traffic. They certainly don't exist in any city i know.
  16. Poll: Rural roads in germany are generally limited to...

    Rural roads in germany are generally limited to 100km/h - similar in france and italy. Riding there is not too uncomfortable if traffic isn't high.

    Depends on what the rest of the bike can stomach. If the bike has fat tubes, painted in one dominant color, black/black looks good.

    So you are proposing what? Building a second infrastructure where no such intersections are? Good luck with that. sounds to me like dreaming of a wonderland where nothing but fluffy clouds and pretty...

    So if we had a second planet without cars, all cyclists would be safe. Is this "dealing with how things are"?

    If you move from Pt. A to Pt. B using a bicyle, you are bound to encounter traffic of...

    In the EU road safety evaluation/fatalities per Mio inhabitants for 2013 (newest numbers available), Germany is a bit beneath Ned/Den but still ranks very well. Oh, UK with very little cycle traffic...

    Generally, fines for traffic violations are among the lower in EU in Germany. Like i said, extremely strong car lobby.
    Speeding up to 20km/h above the allowed is max. 35€ in DE - the same costs you...

    Want a silver bullet out-of-the box solution? Of course i have one, but it's not free. Visit my website or talk to my office for rates. And buy a few stylish t-shirts while you're there!

    look into different models. Talk to more than one bike advocat or group, especially those with an older bike culture. Discuss with an open mind. Listen to their experiences. Compare. Make your own...

    I see - that is why everyone believes the dutch or danish model is a better fit. Any idea how big Netherlands are? cycle a bit more than 10mls in one direction and you have a good chance of violating...
