Ecologists and associations that promote bicycle use require municipalities to use temporary cycle lanes.

How to exit confinement? Large cities are already preparing temporary cycle lanes to prevent infection and to focus on sustainable mobility.

Many European countries are promoting the use of bicycles in cities and are preparing special measures for sustainable mobility. Encourage the use of bicycles as an individual means of transport to prevent contamination, avoid collective transport that may be a source of infection.

There are many cities that are developing special measures to promote the use and the Cycling Friendly Mobility view is:

Pamplona, Spain. Promoting temporary lanes to minimize urban contamination.

Barcelona,will convert car spaces into widening sidewalks and cycle lanes. Barcelona will have 21 km more cycle lanes and the intention is to create new ones. The measures approved in Barcelona are also being implemented in other major Spanish cities. The condal city is at the forefront with an investment of more than 4.4 million euros.

And Europe?

Several European cities are reinventing themselves to promote bicycle use. The world is every day more Cycling Friendly Mobility!

Berlin, is redesigning road bike brands for the use of the bicycle and guaranteeing its demand. Temporary lanes are being opened on the city’s main streets, a measure to encourage people to commute without using public transport.

Milan, Italy, proposes a project to open more than 35 km of cycling streets. The city is one of the most affected by the coronavirus and, with this project, aims to promote the use of the bicycle at the expense of the car.

Paris, the city on the Seine, has launched an ambitious project worth over € 300 millionand is preparing to open more than 650 km of cycle lanes, temporarily and permanently. Without a doubt an important commitment to sustainable mobility in the city.

Brussels, the European capital, from May 4, cyclists and pedestrians have priority in its historic center, in addition to speed limitation to 20 km / h.

Worldwide, there are many cities such as Bogotá (Colombia), Philadelphia, San Francisco (US), Auckland (New Zealand) Toronto (Canada) and Glasgow and Edinburgh (Scotland) that are committed to open these lanes.

Architects, urban planners and experts in sustainable mobility have to redesign cities to promote the use of the bicycle.
