Munich

Christoph is a freelance IT consultant in Munich who gets around a lot. Congested streets, stuffy subway trains, delays. Not any more. He has started using a pedelec. The 30 year old sees his pedelec as both a company vehicle and as a piece of leisure and sport equipment.

For that reason the city invested in the expansion, signposting and safety of bike paths. Today, Munich is the city with the longest network of dedicated cycle lanes in Germany.
