For years we have been advocating for the improvement of bikers’ situation in Toruń and for including inhabitants in the decision-making process concerning urban matters. Unfortunately, there is still no constructive dialogue between authorities and residents using various means of transport in our city. This is what we want to change.
To start cooperation between inhabitants and local authorities, we will organise joint meetings, workshops and biking trips to discuss contentious issues and discover the biking infrastructure of the city in friendly atmosphere. We will invite city councillors and representatives of local media to join the initiative. We will hold a cycle of meetings for participants to present their comments, demands or needs and to discuss the Toruń cycling traffic development plan. We will organise a host of activities promoting cycling as a healthy and environmentally friendly alternative, including city bike trips, lessons in schools and urban games. Our objective is to encourage Toruń inhabitants to bike for health and for the environment and to show them that they can shape urban space, too. These initiatives will also help establish cooperation between bikers and town officials.
