7. Cycle Advocacy and Education


This chapter contains six articles about promoting cycle culture and includes experiences from cycle advocacy groups about organising citizens’ movements and building up a large cycling organisation. The spotlight is also turned on the significance of civil partnerships and on marketing cycling as mainstream. The last two articles describe various ways of motivating children to cycle through games and training so that they end up as competent cyclists of the future. More
