Both European and American experiences show that bicycle facilities promote biking. A positive association between miles of bicycle pathways per 100,000 residents and the percentage of commuters using bicycles for 18 cities in the US has been found. The pathways included both cycle tracks and cycle lanes, but they did not include streets with wide shoulders. Adequate cycle infrastructure is often missing in Europe, except in the Netherlands and Denmark, and if it does exist, it often does not comply with the best practice. In order to get towards safe non-restrictive cycling, this must be changed. A broad range of measures that may affect safety and mobility for bicyclists has been surveyed. The objective of this paper is to find non-restrictive measures that promote safety and mobility in cycling.
