The project „Cycling as an element of urban climate mitigation policy“ (Cyclurban) will advance cycling as a measure for sustainable urban mobility and climate mitigation on a local level. In particular, the project will look at the current situation and develop measures to strengthen cycling mobility in the areas infrastructure, policy and planning, services and promotion, also taking into account new developments such as e-bikes and cargo bikes. It will demonstrate how to integrate cycling into municipal strategies in one city in each of our six target countries: Tartu (Estonia), Riga (Latvia), Warsaw (Poland), Velika Gorica (Croatia), Bratislava (Slovakkia) and Drama (Greece). Each city will develop own specific strategies to advance urban cycling mobility. In a second step, the project will also provide recommendations on how cycling can be supported on the national level. In seminars and with the help of lessons learned publications, it will disseminate experiences to reach more municipalities and decision makers.
