The Cycling Scoop

Edition 2

New cycling strategies in Handshake cities

Much has changed since our last issue. COVID-19 has come into our lives and placed cycling in the spotlight like perhaps never before.

The same applies in Handshake cities, for instance in Bruges and Helsinki where new cycling strategies were recently passed. Find a video and a podcast below that reveal more on these exciting steps forward.

Aside from that, discover more on what is happening in other Handshake cities and the wider world of cycling, as well as a new guide on resilient urban mobility planning.

We hope you enjoy this issue!
