Overview

Objectives

The aim of this work is to develop a comprehensive study on national cycling activities, including data collection, processing, and analysis, which characterizes cycling and cycling infrastructure on a national scale and environmental dimensions.

Assignments to achieve the aim are:

  • evaluating data and information;
  • identifying the most efficient method for obtaining data;
  • collecting data;
  • compiling an inventory of cycling infrastructure;
  • making proposals.

Results

The results of the survey show that 6.4% of Latvia's population cycle each or almost every day, but 19.8% at least once a week. Most often, cycling occurs in Pierīga, but the least in Latgale. With harsher weather, the number of cyclists is reduced by 25%.

Latvia contains a total of 727.76 km of different infrastructure for cycling. In the development of cycling, the economic benefits are estimated at several million euros. A significant aspect of development is to integrate cycling into the common transport system.
