The present thesis deals with everyday cycling in the suburban region of the two communities Gratwein-Straßengel and Gratkorn. Suburban regions show particular traffic characteristics. On the basis of their historical genesis they are especially affine for motor vehicles. The objectives of this thesis are to identify basics for the development of a bicycle-friendly environment and to promote everyday cycling in the study area. A SWOT-analysis states the status quo for the development of everyday cycling in Gratwein-Straßengel and Gratkorn. Building on this, strategical starting points were derived from the results of the SWOT-analysis. These starting points show which aspects should be respected for developing a future strategy.For this purpose, everyday cycling is characterized and defined initially as well as planning principles for the development of a bicycle transport network suitable for everyday life are shown. Suburban regions are characterized as well and are described with regard to their traffic-oriented relevance. Some strengths, such as the good supply and the accessibility within the study area face some weaknesses, such as the currently insufficient infrastructure for bicycle transport and negative suburban processes (progressive spawl, loss of ability to penetrate and decentralized urbanization processes).
