#Bicivisme -bike civility-, the mobility’s future in Barcelona

October 9th, 2019

The urban cyclist’s increase has been exponential along with the bike lane and the electric scooter users, but nowadays the room for all these citizens is limited and the importance of a civic behavior from everyone is vital.

Born Bike Tours Barcelona has been riding bicycles through all the streets of Barcelona during the last 10 years and, within this time, we have been able to observe and experience the evolution of this means of transport in the city.

During the last 5 years, the bike lane has increased a lot of kilometers lengthwise, but not across, and in the last 3 years, bicycles and electric scooters have started to live together on this kind of road and to multiply themselves exponentially because of the daily journeys. If, to this fact, we add the big number of people who live in the city and who move around it walking or by car/motorbike daily, in addition to all the people who are visiting the city -during this year 8 thousand of tourists- we see very clearly that the civility and the cohabitation are key pieces in the daily city life.

#Bicivisme is a campaign which tries to educate citizens in the use of bicycles and the electric scooter, and it has been created by AMB – Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona-, with the collaboration of BACC -Bicicleta Club de Catalunya-. This is a guide which includes a lot of important tips about security for you and all the people who move around the streets of Barcelona.

During next weeks we are going to insist in some of these tips, so you shouldn’t miss the news of our blog 😉
