“By Bike” is an urban space and traffic concept for a seamless cycleway network – a novel concept in Zurich.
Today, Zurich’s cycleways are very fragmented, with poor navigation, and a limited visual presence in the city. In the future, we envision a comprehensive cycleway network that connects all the districts of Zurich . Four contiguous cycle routes highlighted by a prominent visual element (e.g., a continuous colored line) will join all the important areas of the city.
To promote the realization of this idea, the concept must include the needs of other road users. Then, by acting together all the stakeholders can benefit and the cycleway can become a feature of the streetscape which will help to promote orientation and security.
