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.
In June 2016, the world’s first Bicycle Mayor was elected in Amsterdam. Now, they are active on every continent.
BYCS– which initiated and coordinates the program – is now working with local partners to set up Bicycle Mayors in cities around the world. Meet our Bicycle Mayors here or find out how you can support the program here.
Bicycle Mayors transform cities. Cities transform 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. Time for your city to get a Bicycle Mayor?
