Attachments Summary
Hele rapporten

The project has mapped bicycle use in six Norwegian cities, including Trondheim. The analyses show that Trondheim has the highest cycling share among the cities studied. Men ride more than women, while women are the most frequent users of electric bicycles. Most cyclists in Trondheim use bicycles for travelling to and from work or school. Trondheim is a rather compact city where most cycling commutes cover short distances, which is a reason why Trondheim is well suited for cycling. At the same time, respondents state that there are several areas where they feel unsafe. This is especially the case in areas with high volumes of car traffic such as the main bridges and roads towards Midtbyen. Measures to improve cycling conditions in these places can make Trondheim an even better city to cycle in.
