Bicycle Mayor and Leaders Network

Global initiative

The Bicycle Mayor & Leaders Network is a global initiative to accelerate the progress of cycling in cities by highlighting and supporting the role of civil society in enacting lasting, community driven change.

Bicycle Mayors are the human face and voice of cycling advocacy in a city. We connect these change-makers across a global network to create greater visibility and facilitate the sharing of knowledge, ideas, challenges, and solutions to create a truly radical shift.

We initiated the network in 2016 with Amsterdam’s first Bicycle Mayor and it has since then grown to over 100 advocates from cities in more than 30 countries. Together, they are using the bicycle to address pollution crises, tackle road deaths, strengthen communities, break down social barriers and enable greater access essential services and economic opportunity. Time for your city to get a Bicycle Mayor?
