Some websites that you may put into your bookmark. The categories are broadly connected to each other, therefore I suggest all stakeholders to iniciate dialogues between all responsible departments and business units in order to sketch up your city’s very first cycling policy, develop cycling network and facilities, support cycling neighbourhoods and NGOs, promote both commuting and recreational cycling. Meanwhile motorised traffic must be partly restricted (downtowns), partly re-routed (ring roads, especially where heavy traffic) and last but not least evaporated. If you are still reading these pages than probably you are interested in how to put everyday people on bicycles or facilitate them to think about their city as their safe and wonderful home and not as a place where ‘just to survive’.
I try to keep the links to external knowledge hubs updated, although feel free to suggest new ones at any time.
