International Comparator Study

An International Comparator Study, commissioned by Cycling Scotland, and produced by Urban Movement and European Cyclists’ Federation, was published in late 2015 and aimed to identify:

  • progress over time that key European comparator countries (Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Spain and Austria) made to increase cycling mode share
  • the implementation of key plans, policies and programmes over those years and decades
  • precedents that can help Scotland achieve the vision of 10% of everyday journeys by bike
