We believe in a future where liveable cities support and promote positive human experiences, and we believe the bicycle is key to achieving this. Increasing cycling ensures better health, promotes community strength, protects the environment and supports a sustainable economy. To this end, we have set up the mission of 50by30; half of all city trips by bike by 2030. And we are working with businesses, governments, and non-profits around the world to make it a reality.
Join the movement towards 50by30.

Adopt a Program
We believe that accelerated city transformation cannot be achieved alone but is the result of dynamic, creative partnerships. We are developing a number of programs that we can collaborate on to apply anywhere. They have been designed to benefit any city regardless of what stage of cycling they are at. This not only allows anyone to work with us to implement a proven change model, but also instantly connects your city to an active global network.
Bicycle Mayor Program – our non-profit network of city leaders is now active on every continent, identifying challenges and building collaborations around breakthrough solutions.
CycleLabs – our network of ‘co-laboratories for transformational change’. A mixture of highly collaborative physical space and centre for learning and system-level change. We believe every city can benefit from a CycleLab. And any changemaker can help us implement one in their city.
Impact Index – we have developed a future-focused index for cities to show how to act on the challenges and opportunities of the future.
Bicycle Architecture Biennale – a touring showcase of outstanding built environment solutions around cycling to inspire and facilitate urban transformation.
Bike to Work – using behavioural dynamics and intuitive apps, we increase commuting by bike for businesses and governments to improve health, engagement and climate action.

Partner with Us
BYCS is the international convening organization powering the global Bicycle Mayor network. As a social enterprise, we invest the profits from our private work into supporting the network’s growth and activities. From Cape Town to Sao Paulo and from Beirut to Bangalore, Bicycle Mayors are leading incredible shifts in cities; improving health and liveability, and stimulating new enterprise and opportunities. We are now looking to bring on more funding partners to ensure the rapid growth we are seeing is sustained and that every Mayor can be best supported to continue to drive profound impacts. To this end, we have launched two branded partner packages, offering organizations an opportunity to be part of a high profile, engaging and impactful change-making program.
In addition: we work with a range of organizations that share our vision for how cycling can transform cities. Whether it’s working together on a new design challenge or a communications campaign, if you have ideas for how we could collaborate, then we would love to hear from you.
