On Wednesday 22 November 2023, approximately 40 delegates across 27 countries attended our sixth #RAPKnowledgeLive session highlighting the latest on CycleRAP.
Background: CycleRAP is an easy, affordable and fast method of evaluating road and bicycling infrastructure for safety. It aims to reduce crashes and improve safety specifically for bicyclists and other light mobility users by identifying high risk locations without the need for crash data.
On the 25 October, a new report ‘Cycling around the World’ was launched by iRAP, in partnership with MAPFRE Foundation, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and PTV Group. This report covers the first major pilot of the CycleRAP model, with cities in Europe, South America and North America participating.
In this session, iRAP’s Global Innovation Manager and Cities Specialist Monica Olyslagers presented on:
- A brief introduction of CycleRAP and its evolution since being launched in 2022.
- Discussion on the pilot project, including the ‘Cycling around the World’ report and associated case studies.
- Whats next for CycleRAP?
