Social distancing measures have shed light on how crucial cycling is for providing a healthy, safe, reliable and fast transport option both for essential trips and outdoor exercise. With the progressive lifting of lockdown measures, more and more cities are showing strong leadership by reallocating public space to active mobility and governments around Europe are offering financial incentives to encourage cycling. If we want these changes to be a permanent part of the post-COVID-19 world, collaboration, strong political will and concrete action will be necessary.

The European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) issued a set of recommendations(link is external) for European, national and local authorities to promote cycling. On World Bicycle Day, ECF is hosting a webinar to present these recommendations and discuss with leading decision-makers and cycling advocates how we can take advantage of the current crisis to rethink our urban mobility systems and redesign cities for good.

The webinar will take place on 03 June 2020 at 14:00 CEST.
