An increasing number of Stockholmers are opting to cycle to work. Newly-built bike parks make the commute much easier.
“I cycle two or three days a week to get some exercise and to be sure I get home in time to fetch the children,” says Emma Rosling, who works for Veidekke at Solna Business Park. “I live on the island of Färingsö on Lake Mälaren, and the traffic jams stretching back towards the Mälaren islands are horrendous. Basically it’s quicker to cycle home, even though it’s quite far. But with an electric bike it’s not so hard, in fact it’s quite enjoyable.”
“Interest in cycling to work is steadily increasing, and it’s something we want to encourage,” says Joel Grönwall, Area Manager at Fabege. “That’s why we’re planning more bike parks.”
