This project aims to get insight into the flow characteristics of cyclists in a quantitative way, and to best describe the relation between density, speed and flow in different infrastructure settings (i.e. width, directionality, etc.). The insights will be retrieved by observing and analysing real-life observations and by conducting a controlled experiment. Furthermore, a macroscopic model will be developed which will be able to reproduce bicycle flow on a busy cycle path and intersection.
