Bicycle Infrastructure in Participation Activity in the Łódź City

participation, participation activity, bicycle infrastructure, classification of cyclists


In the recent years, increasing popularity of multimodal transport is observed in high and medium developed countries. Besides public transport, bicycles are the key element in that form of communication mobility through urban areas. Bicycles are also desirable by city dwellers. Projects for cyclists are welcome, which is visible (for example) in participation activity in Łódź. However, some of these propositions are incorrect. The main aim of this paper is presentation and analysis of these realizations, base on cyclists' needs, their conflicts with drivers and city's cycling policy. Proposed studies will show directions of future changes to repair the current situation.
