Budapest lost out in the competition of cyclist towns
This year’s list only includes towns with more than 600 inhabitants. On the top of the list, which was compiled by copenhagenize.eu, is Copenhagen, ahead of Amsterdam, which was the first in 2011 and 2013. The authors justified the change with that the Danish capital’s improvement has been outstanding in recent years: from the 36% of 2012, the proportion of the cyclists in the city has increased to 45%. For this, improvements were needed like cyclist bridges and new roads, nlcafe.hu said.Bordeaux
Budapest was the 18th in 2013, but now, the Hungarian capital is not on the list.
The Top 20:
