Bordeaux Métropole, France

Before setting up an action plan to improve their local cycling conditions, Bordeaux Métropole brought Copenhagenize Design Co. on board to advise and provide inspiration on best-practice bicycle urbanism. Local politicians attended a Copenhagenize keynote in Bordeaux and participated in a study trip to Copenhagen, and subsequently voted for an ambitious Cycling Strategy for the next four years in order to make cycling a comfortable and competitive means of transportation in the Greater Bordeaux area. With another study trip, a special Master Class for Bordeaux's urban designers, as well as workshops and conferences on bicycle urbanism and communication, Copenhagenize continues to diffuse knowledge on high quality bicycle infrastructure and user-centered design at all levels of Bordeaux Métropole — from politicians to urban designers and communication officers.
