As much of the world looks to recover emotionally, mentally, and physically from the COVID-19 pandemic, the rise of more local crises caused by climate change threatens our ability to rebuild and renew our cities. We need different approaches and solutions to live in and move through our cities more sustainably. Cycling is one key solution: a way to address the ongoing public health crisis and the unfolding climate crisis, as well as lay the foundation for streets that prioritize people.

We have a unique opportunity to galvanize global momentum growing around cycling. The Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) and a coalition of more than 50 cities and partners will mark the official launch of the Cycling Cities campaign during the UNFCCC COP26 conference in Glasgow, a member of the Cycling Cities cohort. The event will highlight cities, like Glasgow, Mexico City, Jakarta, and Rio de Janeiro, on the vanguard of rethinking their streets to expand access and well-being, and combat climate change.

Join us as we commit to transform cities for cars into cities for all, and learn how you can be part of this global movement to create more Cycling Cities.
