Play

JOACHIM HOCHSTEIN, Cycling Policy Adviser for the city of Frankfurt in Germany, speaks to Eoin Drinan about the difference in the ways cycling policies are implemented in Germany and Ireland.

Joachim’s initial impressions of the health of cycling infrastructure in Dublin city are positive. He sees many cyclists on the streets regardless of the weather. However, he is concerned about overcrowding and very high traffic volumes. He is pleased about the prevalence of high visibility clothing on cyclists in Dublin, which he says is not the style in Frankfurt.
