Mobile2020 has ended

Our project "More biking in small and medium sized towns of Central and Eastern Europe by 2020" (mobile2020) has ended. Read about our approach and achievements in our brochures "gaining momentum" and "keeping balance" or dive deeper into utility cycling with the mobile2020 handbook



Within the framework of mobile2020, a comprehensive handbook on cycling planning for municipalities has been developed by the project partners ISOE and University of Technology, Hamburg. It was translated to all languages of our target countries and is available (pdf) for download here :



With this brochure “Cycling in liveable cities” we want to provide some help and inspiration to professionals who deal with cycling at municipalities: urban planners, committee and council members, but also to other interested parties who think about cycling as a daily mode of transportation. 

The basis of our explanation is that the decision of people to use the bicycle as an everyday means of transport is not just influenced by infrastructure alone. Therefore we reflect on importance of cycling for individual use and benefits for the city, and integration of cycling into urban planning. To encourage the practical implementation activities for cycling at municipalities we discuss briefly on how to start, on offering services for cycling and on bike promotion activities. 

Throughout the pages of this brochure we will guide you to sources for further reading on best practice examples for implementation. In the printed inlet pages you will find information on relevant stakeholder organizations to promote cycling in your country.
