CYCLO is focused on the realization of experiences of sustainable mobility through the implementation of bike-use in small and medium urban systems in the MED area, contributing to spread a philosophy of sustainable and eco-compatible economic and social progress. CYCLO promotes an active participation of each territory to the project strategy to turn some cycling cities into accessible systems, through the implementation of pilot actions/awareness events to promote bike-based multimodality.
