A study was conducted to determine the opposition and support for implementation of a bicycle path along the lakes of Sortedam and Peblinge found in Copenhagen, Denmark. Surveys of area residents, pedestrians and bicyclists revealed the profiles of advocates and opponents of bicycling. Typically, opponents were 43 years old living directly along the Dosseringen who generally used the area for recreation. The typical supporter was 34 years old, active, and used the Dosseringen for travel and enjoyment of the area.
