Highlights of the cycling strategy of Gent:
• Bicycle facilities: Of the four main bicycle routes originally planned, three were almost finished by the end of 2003 and one completely.
• Bicycle parking: From the very beginning the municipality and the police have been working together toward realising a structured approach of bicycle parking and preventing and combating bicycle theft.
• Sensitising: Communication plays an important role in Ghent bicycle and mobility policy.
• Promotion: Three target groups receive special attention when promoting bicycle use: students, school pupils and civil servants.
