Odense, Denmark, 9 - 10 June 2010

Study tour
The indoor training was followed by an outdoor study visit

Active travel, and particularly cycling, can contribute to better health and increase of life expectancy. These facts are well known and have been promoted by different scientific studies and European funded mobility projects, such as Lifecycle, Active Access or Vianova. But what about older people? Is it not too dangerous for them to cycle, and do the positive impacts of cycling apply also at this stage of life?

These questions were investigated in detail by leading international experts at the 2-day AENEAS training workshop. The first day included presentations and small group discussions. The second day was concluded by a study visit in Odense - one of Europe's leading cities to promote cycling.
