 Bicycle training in Graz
BYPAD Modul: Bicycle information and education Graz   (Austria)
Austrian Mobility Research launched a school project in 1994 which aimed at conveying the basics of road traffic to the pupils. What was special about this cycle training was that the training sessions did not take place in safe areas but in a real traffic environment.

Implementation


More than half of the children who participated in the training were able to improve their cycle skills after even one training session. A study on the long-time effects of the cycle training was also carried out: 73% of all children who participated in the training in 1994 still use the bike as a regular means of transport.

In the BYPAD questionnaire for cities this example fits to module 6 question 19
