When there is a problem I love the creative solutions that result. Read more here.

“Hilly cities normally have a low share of cycling. How come that Trondheim, the third largest city of Norway, has the highest share of cycling compared to all the other Norwegian cities? We believe there are there reasons:

1. Trondheim is a university city with 30 000 students, 90 % of whom using their bicycles as their main transport tool
2. During the last 20 years, there has been invested more than 20 mill NOK in a bicycle roads network and bicycle transport infrastructure in Trondheim
3. One of the most important infrastructure elements is the bicycle lift Trampe. Since the opening in 1993, it’s pushed more than 220 000 cyclist up the very steep hill BBrubakken in the historical heritage part of the city center

There is no doubt that Trampe has inspired students as well as other people living in Trondheim to take to their bicycles. In a user survey, 41 % of the lift users claim they’re using the bicycle more often due to the installation of Trampe.”

    Get off your lazy butts and walk the bike up the hill or heaven forbid… get a little exercise and ride up the hill. For crying out loud!

  3. Daniel Walkability Says:

    That’s a great thought Jimbo, but in some places, things like these can make the difference between those who bike and walk to those who choose to drive (sitting on their lazy buts, while emitting tons of pollutants during their journeys).
