The purpose of this research is to review the problems faced by Taipei’s current bicycle-life development through the author’s personal experience as a bicycle lover and the discussion about bicycle development plans in the Netherlands and the municipality in the Netherlands, in the province of Utrecht – Houten. The primary research motivation came about when the researcher, who has long cycled between home and Taipei, discovered that the development of the city’s modern bicycle policy was overly rigid and still secondary to a planning concept centered around motor vehicles, resulting in the needs and expectations of city cyclists not being fully met.
The structure of this research can be divided into three parts: First, according to literature analysis and the researcher’s experience, the three factors affecting city residents’ bicycle riding can be summarized as “safety,” “comfortability,” and “convenience.” After individual inspection, it is apparent that Taipei’s current developments are lacking in each factor, thus making it difficult to attract residents to ride their bikes in the city. Secondly, it was discovered through case discussion that the primary reason the Netherlands is able to successfully promote bicycle riding among citizens is that it has an advantageous policy, economy, social culture, and natural environment, and their government clearly places bicycles at the forefront of transportation development policy. Comparing the experience of the Netherlands and Taipei, it is apparent that the problem with Taipei’s current bicycle policy implementation lies within its lack of a comprehensive planning concept and its hardware construction being mostly in the experimental phase. At the same time, ordinary citizens’ over-reliance on motor vehicles is the root of the problem. Finally, experimental prospective planning and design operations are being implemented in downtown Taipei and put forward the concept of “bicycle-life area” to provide relevant organizations new ways of thought and methods of planning in future bicycle policy development.
Therefore, this research concludes that if Taipei is to truly carry out the goal of “bicycle-integrated life,” it must grasp the following main points:
1. Take into consideration the station distribution of Taipei’s mass transportation system and the length/habits of city residents’ daily bicycle rides, and build a “bicycle-life area” for cyclists to safely ride by re-adjusting the road transportation system and the boundaries of where daily life activities occur.
2. The bicycle road network should be connected to public places and areas frequented by people in their daily lives, such as schools, mass transportation stations, parks, etc. Use the strategy of establishing transfer areas to supply people with convenient and highly effective travel methods.
3. Encourage businesses and government organizations to plan restrooms in public areas and the workplace in order to improve the comfortability of cyclists after their ride.
