What did cities do in Stage 1?

India Cycles4Change Challenge aims at inspiring Indian cities to implement quick cycling-friendly interventions in the wake of COVID-19. As part of the stage 01 of this transformative journey 41 cities have worked — from June to January — on 3 components — testing pilot cycling interventions, building momentum for cycling, and creating scaleup plans to make their streets cycling-friendly.

40+ new cities have embarked on a transformative journey to become cycling-friendly, through Season 02 of the India Cycles4Change Challenge, kickstarting from April 2022! 

 25 cities from Season 01—India’s Cycling Pioneers—are now working towards implementing permanent cycling interventions.

How are cities doing it?

Test-Learn-Scale isn’t a new idea; applying it to the Indian context was. The India Cycles4Change challenge introduced this mantra to help cities create solutions that meet the needs of the people, while also garnering citizen support.
