Mexican Cities – Pedaling for low carbon development
The Cyclist Profile allows us to collect and analyze information about the practices and uses of bicycles in cities, such as the motivations of people to pedal, the average distance traveled, the most frequent destinations, among others. The results of the profile provide a valuable diagnosis for both governments and organizations that want to promote actions to promote mobility on bicycles, and monitor their effects on the mobility trends of people over time.
The methodology of the Cyclist Profile for Mexican cities was developed within the framework of the “Climate Protection in the Mexican Urban Policy Program” (CiClim) of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in cooperation with the Institute for Transportation and Development Policies (ITDP) and the Cyclocities Initiative.
The full report contains, among others:
• The results of the Cyclist Profile in five cities of the Cities & Climate Change program (CiClim)
• The description of the Cyclist Profile methodology (Chapter 2)
• Materials to develop a Cyclist Profile Diagnosis in an editorial version (non-editable): Questionnaire, Scanning sheet, Application guide for pollsters (Attachments)
We make available for free use and adaptation to your local context all materials to develop a diagnosis of the cyclist profile in editable versions:
• Document 1 – Application guide for the questionnaire for interviewers
• Document 2 – Questionnaire for surveys
• Document 3 – Questionnaire digitization sheet
• Document 4 – Database digitization sheet
In the framework of the World Bicycle Day, on June 3rd, 2019, declared by the General Assembly of the United Nations, representatives of the Ministry of Agrarian, Territorial and Urban Development (SEDATU), GIZ, and the ITDP presented the “Cyclist Profile” and the new version of the Cyclocities Ranking.
