What’s behind Bremen’s pro-cycling campaign?
Bremen is a bicycle town. But what exactly is a bicycle town? According to Uebermann, a town can be called that if cycling is perceived as natural by all parties there. The town of Bremen is well on the way there. With a bike traffic share of 25 percent on average, Bremen lies in first place amongst towns with more than 300,000 inhabitants in Germany. Compared to the rest of Europe, the city on the Weser is behind Amsterdam and Copenhagen in 3rd place. Jens Joost-Krüger, head of the project Bremen and Bremerhaven Bike it!, talks about the bike traffic communication project.
