Guardian Cities cycle week: what it is and how you can get involved
Cycling is at a tipping point: while some cities build bike lanes and ban cars, others are experiencing a backlash. Will the future of cities be two-wheeled? Join us all this week and speak your mind
In the battle against air pollution and gridlock caused by cars, cities around the world are increasingly turning to a low-tech, two-wheeled solution.
Urban cycling, however, appears to be at a tipping point. While London and even Los Angeles look to build better bike lanes, and Oslo or Madrid make efforts to ban cars from their centres entirely, other cities appear to be back-pedalling, embracing driverless cars or banning some people from using bikes altogether.
