ADFC bicycle climate test - How bicycle-friendly is the Prignitz

From September 1st to November 30th, 2022 voting is possible.

Together with the Federal Ministry of Transport, the Allgemeine Deutsche Fahrrad Club e.V. (ADFC) calls on all cyclists to rate their cities and communities. The test aims to identify the strengths and weaknesses of cycling promotion. This year the focus is on rural areas, where there is great potential for cycling and infrastructure development.

Prignitzer should benefit from sustainable and climate-friendly road traffic. Numerous investments have been made in recent years to improve the infrastructure. Now the question arises as to whether the improvements will reach the citizens and which changes they would like to see.

In the bicycle climate test, the bike-friendliness on site is queried in 27 questions that remain the same. This year there are five additional questions related to the needs of smaller rural communities.

The ADFC bicycle climate test is taking place for the 10th time. In 2020, almost 230,000 cyclists rated the bike-friendliness in over 1,000 cities and communities. Bad Wilsnack achieved the first of a total of 19 places in a comparison of cities with 20,000 inhabitants in the state of Brandenburg with an overall grade of 2.7. Wittenberge and Perleberg followed in 2nd and 3rd place. Rapid progress, the signposting and the accessibility of the city center were rated positively. One point of criticism was the provision of public bicycles for rent, which was counteracted with the installation of the Donkey Bikes.
