Many cyclists in Norwegian cities feel unsafe while cycling, especially in the city centres. In addition, safe alternative routes are often not available. In order to increase cycle use in Norway, measures must be put in place to both improve the conditions for cyclists and make cycling paths safer. In this report, we study cyclists and cycling behaviour in the four largest cities in Norway, using multiple data sources. We combine results from the National Travel Survey with a survey on cycling and geographical data collected through a specially designed smartphone application. This data gives relevant insight in cycle usage patterns in the cities, as well as the demographics, route choice and travel satisfaction of cyclists.
