If you've ever considered doing something to improve the conditions for cycling but haven't known how to help fix it, this is a resource for you!
The purpose of this Wiki is to provide information, resources and ideas to enable action to improve your city or neighbourhood for cycling.
There are many issues contributing to helping or hindering cycling - below is a mind map showing some of them. Let us know if an issue you care about isn't there, so we can add it. The aim is to have information and resources for each issue, with everyone's help to build that knowledge.
Why focus on people cycling? Cycling isn't the goal, it's part of the solution. The goal is a more liveable, humane, healthy and friendly city or neighbourhood. More people walking and cycling are key. Cycling, and making a place bicycle-friendly, can have lots of barriers, hence this resource.
This is being created for Sydney, Australia, but we hope that contributors from other cities will be able to add content relevant for other cities and places, too.
