MUBi Porto – Association for Cycling Mobility launches a petition for a more bicycle friendly and accessible Porto, where it highlights measures necessary to change the mobility paradigm in the city. If you are a cyclist, sign; if not, sign too. All of us, even car drivers, are pedestrians and the bicycle, when properly used, is one of the major allies of pedestrians, even for car drivers, so all of us can walk serenely.

O impacto do Covid-19 na procura de espaços sem carros.
Portugal is being invaded by a new form of mobility. Cycling is fashionable and, with or without cycle paths, it is a travel option for hundreds of Portuguese commuters. But this is where the problem arises. The specific routes for this type of vehicles seem increasingly insufficient. To respond to this challenge, the Portuguese government has announced that it will invest 300 million euros in these paths, under the plan Portugal Ciclável 2030, totalling one thousand kilometres, in several localities of the country. The financing will be made through the Environmental Fund and the municipalities shall submit proposals that will be later reviewed. In total, the state plans to invest in 110 cycle paths over a 12-year period.
The Portuguese Municipality of Braga has partnered with the Spanish City of Pontevedra in developing a Mobility and Traffic Management Study. This study will be an instrument that will establish a global strategy for intervention in accessibility and mobility management, and will define a set of actions and measures that contribute to the implementation of a more sustainable model, focussing on economic development, greater social cohesion and ensuring environmental protection and energy efficiency.
Em 2016, era líder do ranking europeu de exportação de bicicletas; em 2017, caiu para o segundo lugar: ainda assim, Portugal tem a maior fábrica de montagem da Europa. Mas “o mercado [nacional] é pequeno e pedala pouco”. O que falta?
