There is no better way to explore the city of Graz than by bicycle. The cycling infrastructure is good and cycling lobby groups have been working hard to improve the provision further. The city’s mobility strategy also stipulates that by 2020 the city’s cycling modal share should reach 20 per cent. The many cycling routes and cycle lanes make the bicycle the ideal mode of transport for shorter or medium -length journeys around the metropolitan area. A survey published in 2013 showed that on average approximately 14.5 per cent of all journeys undertaken by residents of Graz were by bicycle. Cycling conditions on all the secondary roads in the city are very good due to the 30 km/h speed limit throughout the city, which makes cycling in Graz particularly stress-free. Cyclists can travel both ways down most of the one-way streets in the metropolitan area (look for additional signs next to the one-way street signs that state “ausgenommen Radfahrer” – “except cyclists”).
