Awareness and Education
Cycling for All Ages
A broad demographic range of people on bikes is a common sight in advanced cycling cities, sometimes known as "8 to 80". Part of this diversity is the spread of age groups that feel comfortable travelling by bike, or trike, or balance bike. The promotion of provision for different types of cycle can also broaden cycling's appeal for everyday trips.
Bringing about a broad acceptance of cycling
Munich is a leader in inclusive cycling campaigns, helping it become the city where you all ages and abilities are a normalised feature of its city landscape. Handshake cities will explore the measures and develop cycling campaigns that that will help facilitate cycling across "All Ages and Abilities" ("AAA") . These range from demonstration cycling streets at the earliest stages, to and targeted packages of communications for older and younger groups, and gaining better data on current bicycle users to better inform future policies aimed at making cycling truly inclusive.
