Children train traffic skills in bike playgrounds
Cyklistforbundet, the Danish federation for cyclists, have taken part in the construction and inauguration of several bike playgrounds and more are in the pipeline.
The purpose is to prepare the children to ride safely in the real traffic. During games in the bike playground children train balancing the bike, stopping and starting – please see article and video in Danish.
The bike playgrounds are financed by municipalities themselves and in part Nordeafonden. Some municipalities already have bike playgrounds like Copenhagen.
