Brazilian guide to including bicycling in transportation planning

Brazilian members of the World Cycling Alliance, supported by the Instituto Clima e Sociedade, have published the guide "How to Include Cycling in Urban Mobility Plans."  The guide, which is part of the country's "Bicycle in the Plans" campaign, offers guidelines for transportation professionals, citizens, municipal officials, decision-makers, and politicians on including bicycling as a mode of transportation in Urban Mobility Plans, which all Brazilian cities are required to have in order to access federal transportation funds. Although the guide is based on the Brazilian context, it is intended as a tool for governments, professional groups, organizations, and individuals in other countries as well, to share knowledge gained in Brazil about bicycle planning and policy, and to inspire others to create and implement similar initiatives.
