Nowadays it is impossible being indifferent to the improvement of the urbanization and the mobility and sustainable road infrastructures.It has to be taken into account the bike as a mode of transport for many reasons such as:reduction of pollution and the emissions,safety on the road,less space and healthy.Mostly in big cities,perhaps it is the fastest mode of transport because it's not subject to traffic and its bottlenecks that block the flow.The Netherlands is the most interested country to travel by bike.It's the place where there are more bikes than cars.In recent years the availability of GPS data has seen a marked improvement in terms of accuracy,continuity and quality of data,thanks to the spread of smartphones and applications for auto-location and navigation.The main advantage is to obtain information on the travel routes actually followed by a large sample of cyclists on the entire network, from their origin to their destination.When GPS tracks can be attributed to detailed transport networks, it is possible to evaluate the factors that users consider in the process of choosing a specific route.It's important to study the choice of the route that cyclists make for many reasons.The objective of this thesis is to examine the aspects that the cyclists taking into account when they choose a route instead of another one.We want to focus on the time travelled,considering the average speed per each link and its correspondent length,and the average waiting times at the intersections:how the time influences cyclists choice. This research will investigate which aspects of the bicycle infrastructures have greater or lesser repercussions on the path made by the cyclists and to model their route choices.It will explore the link between the routes chosen by the cyclists and some attributes of the transport network of the Netherlands.The chosen routes will be compare with the fastest and the shortest calculated thanks to the network analyst in ArcMap for each OD pair.
