Abstract
In the times of global focus on sustainable urban mobility, many cities are implementing different measures, policies, and infrastructure to support safe and efficient modes of transportation. However, it is important to acknowledge that mistakes can occur even among those who are actively working towards a sustainable transition. Recognizing and addressing these mistakes is essential for learning and preventing their recurrence. The purpose of this study is to examine the bicycle network in Trnava, which is renowned as the most "bike-friendly" city in the Slovak Republic (Startitup group, 2018). However, despite the continuous expansion of the bicycle network in the city, it is not attracting an adequate number of new cyclists. The thesis will investigate how the network is perceived by the users, what are the positive and negative sides, and recommend future improvements.
