__ THE FIVE PERCENT 2020 CHALLENGE ___
PENANG NEEDS A BICYCLE MAYOR
NEXT STEPS: Now what? Maybe a creative first step will be to launch an open invitation to see if you can create a sizable consensus of people and groups who are interested to give this idea a closer look.
About The Bicycle Mayor & Leader Program
The Bicycle Mayor & Leader Program is a global initiative to accelerate the progress of cycling in cities and help get another one billion people onto bikes. Pretty simple, right?
Bicycle Mayors are a catalyst to bring together the public and private realms to uncover the massive economic, health, and environmental benefits of increased cycling capacity. They are uncovering new ideas, working with others to deliver action and promoting innovations that support better cycling for all.
BYCS – which initiated and coordinates the program – is now working with local partners to set up Bicycle Mayors in cities around the world. Together, they are using the bicycle to address pollution crises, tackle road deaths, break down social barriers and enable people to access essential services for the first time.
