Visit Berlin: VELOBerlin, Plebiscite, Bicycle industry

Cycle traffic is omnipresent in the German capital. But the potentials and the needs are just as apparent. The city authorities want to tackle the problem of bicycle parking facilities. First interim results of their bicycle parking strategy were presented at the bicycle fair VELOBerlin in mid-April. More attention was created by the bicycle-plebiscite “ Volksentscheid Fahrrad” which aims to give the city a law on cycle traffic and wants to develop it into a genuine cycling city.

“Cycle Competence Austria” was present at the VELOBerlin with a stall and presentations and experienced the pioneering spirit first hand. Cycle Competence member Innovametall presented its innovative cycle parking solution Safety Dock in Berlin.

Cycling industry congress: vivavelo

The vivavelo congress of the German cycling industry, which took place just after the fair, saw flaming speeches by Copenhagenize CEO Mikael Colville-Andersen, ADFC managing director Burkhard Stork and former environmental minister Klaus Töpfer. It also yielded a committed final declaration demanding a break-through in Germany: “But this will only happen once Germany is designed more bicycle-friendly on all levels. This includes the sectors infrastructure, financing, PR and a new way of thinking about space allocation and traffic safety.

The German bicycle industry has generated around 280,000 jobs and a total revenue of €16bn per year. This makes its demands made to the German traffic ministry all the more substantial: The industry wants the means from the federal budget allocated to cycle traffic to be increased from currently around €100m to €1bn annually.
