Protected: Supporting Cycling Cultures in Latin America

BYCS has been working alongside the World Bank, supporting their objectives to promote active travel in the Latin American region. BYCS’ role focuses on increasing awareness of the benefits of cycling and supporting the development of a regional, multisectoral network engaged in the promotion of cycling as a solution to several challenges posed by urban mobility in cities across the continent.
