Ricardo Bravo

I am a political consultant, I have developed research, analysis and strategies in political campaigns, elaboration of public policies for the government, politicians and others. I also act as Director of Consultancy PODER and Collective of Urban Mobility Tulancingo (MUT).

How would you describe your mission?

As Bicycle Mayor, I want to help make y city the reference point across the country, as one of the most prosperous cities, being a leader in public policy and specifically urban cycling.

What are the obstacles and challenges you’re facing in your city?

One of the most difficult obstacles is the resistance from society, specifically from the medium and high economic class to stop using the vehicle for distances no greater than 3 km. And to embrace moving by bicycle in the city for transport.

What are the next steps now that you are the bicycle mayor?

I will participate in the second forum of sustainable mobility organized by the Mobility and Transport Secretary of Hidalgo State. I will announce the actions that I will implement for the next two years as bicycle mayor: (Advertising campaign “Muévete en Bici Libre y Seguro”; night bike ride with benefice, Radiophonic mobility program, between other activities)

What can other cities learn from your city?

The importance of not migrating to other cities or countries looking to get a better quality life, when we can build a better place to live.
