City of Copenhagen bicycle staff study tour

Municipal staff of the city of Copenhagen, responsible for cycling policies, wanted to visit sites of interest to them in the Netherlands. They wanted to learn from a Dutch city. In cooperation with a team member of the Copenhagen staff, we developed a one day programme in which we visited Rotterdam municipal staff, with whom we discussed bicycle policies and regional projects developing various bicycle highways. This was followed by a talk on cycling policies by the bicycle coordinator of Copenhagen. The afternoon programme consisted of a cycle tour, in which we explored the bicycle highway, route finding systems for cyclists and a visit to OV-fiets (the successful Dutch railways bike sharing system). The finale was a dinner at the famous Hotel New York; the place from where, during the 19th and 20th century, many emigrants left for North America.
