The Dutch Reference Study. Cases of interventions in bicycle infrastructure reviewed in the framework of Bikeability.
The Netherlands have a tradition of high bicycle usage and a long history of research on effective policies for promoting cycling. Findings in Dutch studies can be useful in the Danish Bikeability-project that has the objective to increase the level of knowledge in relation to bicycle based transport and to contribute to more efficient and qualified urban planning and management. This report discusses a number of Dutch case studies on the effects of investments in bicycle infrastructure. The reviewed studies include the three ‘classical’ cases in the 20th century: rather large investments in the cities of Tilburg, The Hague and Delft that were evaluated extensively by before and after studies. Other, smaller and more recent cases include the evaluation of shared space, a bicycle street, and interurban highways for cyclists. A general conclusion is that policies can be effective in sustaining high levels of cycling and strengthening cycling culture.

The Bicycle lift Trampe
Site on the bicycle elevator functioning in Trondheim already for several years. A survey shows that the users are content. But until now this example has not been copied elsewhere.
European Cyclist Federation
This organisation represents all national cyclists federations and is therefore a valuable counterpart for Fietsberaad
Research lab - Bicycle Dynamics
A very technical site of the Technical University of Delft about the movement of bicycles and the modeling of these movements: How is it possible that an object so unstable at rest stays becomes very stable when moving
Rails to trails
This US-organisation converts railways to bike trails. Raisl to trails is also becoming more and more active in realising cycle paths in urban situations
Cycling city, cycling towns
The Cycling Demonstration Towns programme was developed to prove that increased funding and bespoke projects could have a significant impact on cycling rates - and results have exceeded expectations. On average, across all towns, cycling has increased by 27%.
Nationale fietshandleiding - Ierland
Deze handleiding omarmt de "Principles of Sustainable Safety" omdat dit een veilige verkeersomgeving biedt voor alle weggebruikers waaronder fietsers. De handleiding dient als gids hoe de fiets kan worden geïntegreerd in het ontwerp van stedelijke gebieden en daagt planners en ingenieurs uit om meer dan voorheen rekening te houden met de fiets.
Cases of interventions in bicycle infrastructure reviewed in the framework of Bikeability
Resultaten van een studie naar enkele Nederlandse fietscases uit de jaren 70 en 80 van de vorige eeuw voor het Deense Bikeability-project, te weten fietsroute Den Haag, fietsroute Tilburg en Fietsnetwerk Delft. Ook wordt kort ingegaan op shared space in Haren en komt een fietsstraat in Haarlem aan de orde.

CROW publication 221. Urban design and traffic – a selection from Bach´s toolbox
Urban planners and traffic managers, each working from their respective specialist fields, can create districts that enjoy smoothly flowing traffic and are enjoyable places to be. The development or reconstruction of such districts, however, has to pay due attention to traffic safety, mobility and quality of life. This publication offers a comprehensive exploration and explanation of the issues involved. The result? A sustainable city that offers good quality of life and traffic safety, where the people who live and work there take centre stage.
Road safety manual
This manual clusters all the knowledge about road safety in the Netherlands. Part 1 seeks to get a handle on the subject of road safety. Part 2 addresses measures that can be taken, focusing on engineering, education and enforcement, and push, pull and persuasion. Part 3 presents an overview of practical problems and how these can be tackled.
ASVV - recommendations for traffic provisions in built-up areas
Collected in this publication is the knowledge relating to design, implementation and management of traffic provisions in built-up areas.
Design manual for bicycle traffic
In order to retain the bicycle’s rightful position within the traffic system and, where possible, to strengthen it, a bicycle-friendly infrastructure is needed. The new CROW-record 25 entitled ‘Design manual for bicycle traffic’ describes the steps required to achieve such an infrastructure. It is a revision of record 10 ‘Sign up for the bike’.
