Workshop 2: Non-Motorized Mobility – Biking

Copenhagen, April 20th - 21st 2018 

This workshop address cycling both as an upcoming and sustainable mode of transport in the Nordic cities and through the lense of biking regimes. Looking at biking practices as a regime, implies the analysis of biking at multiple levels, in terms of culture, economy, planning, and practice. Currently there is a clear division between the Nordic countries in this respect, where DK serves as a model biking friendly regimes with a high level of overall biking and with a higher equality regarding gender and age. This workshop will focus on the potentials of advancing biking as a daily mode of transport in all Nordic Countries, and address new modes of biking such as Mountain and sports-biking as well as bike sharing systems. In what ways are such new modes of biking gendered? How can they be made more inclusive in terms of planning and innovations in designs etc.? How can the bike systems be linked to city wide transportation and access for all?
