There Seems To Be More Bikes In Madrid

In mid-October the Madrid City Council released its report State of Mobility for 2012, as have already told other colleagues. We highlight some detail the lengthy document.

In 2012 the capacity of bicycles this time measured at rush hour, no polls or estimates- has risen 27% in the central zone of Madrid, and has been rising since 2008. We repeat: this is a direct measurement, figures for real. Good news! It is a pity that the Ayto. It has not calculated the bike modal split, however, but hey, do not stop being “hard” data.

If we remember that in Barcelona or Seville also has seen a steady rise in bicycle use in their reports, maybe this will help put into context the rise of the consequences of cyclist accidents in Spain: it may be related to the rise in its use. Well, maybe not: the end of the day, unfortunately, most fatalities and serious injuries continue to occur out of town. Anyway. Straight to the point.

Not everything is so good. It has been repeated many times that Madrid will surely not be the most comfortable bike to get around Spanish city. So the locals seem to believe: the bike is the worst transport mode valued since 2009, although its value does not fluctuate too much. What could the City toimprove this perception?

And finally, in terms of accidents, the City Council has released only a cake without much explanation or absolute figures, but that at first glance seems consistent with the analysis conducted on declared the CIS use: the “dangerousness” of the bikes seems very high in terms of serious casualties over the use they have. Distinct is also the huge proportion of serious pedestrian: 36%. If we had data modal split, we could say whether these percentages are high or low, beyond the ojímetro.

So thank you very much to the City by publishing the report, and the citizens of Madrid who bet on bike lights with MTB tips.
