The Cycling Scoop

Edition 1

Welcome to the wonderful world of Handshake!

Dive into our first newsletter to discover how Handshake is sharing and inspiring cycling excellence - 13 cities from across Europe are here for the ride. The project infographic gives a summary and the website has the full details.

Mentoring is one of the main ways that knowledge is exchanged in Handshake. Three "Cycling Capitals" - Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Munich - are guiding 10 other cities on their journeys to become top cycling cities in their own right. Discover how these close bonds are being forged in this feature article.

We hope you enjoy the first issue!
