No changes in the proportion of cyclists in the population were found in the towns of Sandnes and Tønsberg/ Nøtterøy after 1992, when physical measures and campaigns to increase cycling were implemented. The mean number of trips per cyclist increased in both towns from 1992 to 1994. The increase borders on statistical significance. In Sandnes, the increase in trips was found for cycling to and from work. Most trips are short. Trip duration in minutes and trip length in kilometres was reduced in both towns. About 10% of cyclists wear helmets regularly, an increase from the before-period. In order to increase cycling, it is probably not sufficient to improve conditions for cyclists. The sample surveys were made by telephone. Sample size was about 1,600 in each town.
