BYCS is an Amsterdam-based global NGO guided by the belief that bicycles transform cities and cities transform the world.
They envision an urban future in which half of city trips are by bicycle by the end of the decade. To help achieve this they nurture, strengthen, and scale community-led cycling initiatives globally, striving towards this vision they call 50×30.
We need to ensure our cities are more liveable and fit for the future. BYCS believe every city can benefit from having a catalyst representing cycling progress and the interests of the community. They call these Bicycle Mayors.
Bicycle Mayors can accelerate the changes we need to see by uniting all citizens to take action. They bring creative diversity with new insights and approaches, from both inside and beyond the world of bicycle planning professionals or the political establishment. They are the human face and voice of cycling in a city. By connecting these changemakers across a global network – creating greater visibility, rapidly sharing ideas, challenges and solutions, – we can create a truly radical shift.
