International BYPAD Seminar in Munich, 13 June 2007
BYPAD: Quality standard for cycling policy in European cities, towns and regions

Programme online now!

We are happy to present you the programme of our international BYPAD seminar which is taking place as part of the Velo-city conference (12 – 15 June 2007). You will find all necessary information on the BYPAD website.

More than 100 cities, towns and regions in 20 European countries are using BYPAD for evaluating and improving the quality of their cycling policy, supervised by 34 certified auditors from these countries. Politicians and officials from seven of them - the Swiss City of Zurich, Brussels Capital Region, the Czech Regions Olomouc, Zlin, Usti nad Labem, the Dutch Province of Zeeland and the Austrian town of Feldkirch - are presenting their cycling policies and exchange their experiences with and the lessons learnt from BYPAD.

You are a politician, an official from a local or regional government, a policy maker from a ministry, a policy adviser or advocate from a cycling user group? You are interested in improving the quality of your cycling policy? Then this international BYPAD seminar is your place to be!

BYPAD (Bicycle Policy Audit) is an instrument for the evaluation of local and regional cycling policy and improvement of its quality. BYPAD has been developed and continuously further developed and applied since 1999, with support from the European Commission.
BYPAD has become a European quality standard for cycling policy and a vital European network. Several governments recommend BYPAD in their national cycling strategies, e.g. Germany, Czech Republic, and Austria.

We are looking forward to meet you in Munich!

Certification of BYPAD cities, towns and regions during the Velo-city conference

Certificates are presented by Manfred Neun, ECF president, as part of the reception of the municipality of Munich in the Old Town Hall on Thursday, 14 June 2007, 19:00. Thanks to the hospitality of the Municipality of Munich, the BYPAD consortium is able to hand out the BYPAD certificates in a celebratory and international framework.

Austria: Symposium Vorarlberger Fahrradgipfel in Feldkirch
  This symposium covering all political levels and all fields of cycling, with input from international speakers, is a direct outcome from the BYPAD audit that was carried out in 2006. BYPAD and good practice examples from BYPAD cities, towns and regions are also presented at the Vorarlberger Fahrradgipfel (Feldkirch, 4 May 2007).

The international audience can learn more about Feldkirch’s cycling policy during the international BYPAD seminar in Munich. Come and discuss with Veronika Brüstle-Zangerl, city councillor for urban development, land use planning and mobility, whether and how cycling policy has changed since the BYPAD process.

BYPAD kick-off in Liechtenstein
  On 20 March 2007, the BYPAD process was started in Liechtenstein with a kick-off workshop. More than 30 persons - municipal councillors, officials, policemen and cyclists - from four out of Liechtenstein’s 15 municipalities - came together in Schaan. These four municipalities - Balzers, Eschen, Mauren and Schaan - are each going to run a BYPAD audit. These audits will focus on the mobility patterns of women and especially on their requests for the local cycling policy. The audits are integrated in the actual European Year of Equal Opportunities for All. Co-operation partners are Bernadette Kubik-Risch, director of the Office of Equal Opportunity in Liechtenstein, and Georg Sele, member of the board of Liechtenstein’s traffic league VCL.
