Glasgow has joined 25 cities around the globe in joining the Cycling Cities Campaign, an Institute for Transportation and Development Policy concept that is designed to share the tools and learnings from around the globe where successes in growing cycling levels have become evident.
Launched yesterday at COP 26, the Cycling Cities campaign is dedicated to making cycling a viable transportation option for everyday trips in cities by providing an equitable and climate-friendly alternative to private vehicles. Safe, connected cycle lanes are critical to this vision, as are policies and educational campaigns that shift the perception of cycling.
The campaign’s goal is to ensure 25 million more people will be located near safe cycle lanes by 2025. Studies undertaken since Covid-19’s arrival have demonstrated just how powerful new infrastructure can be to stimulating modal shift from cars to bikes.
