What if cities had a network of champions for cycling?
Cycling reaches everyone!
Kakinada identified a Cycling Champion for every ward in the city to build widespread support for cycling. Over 1000 citizens participated in 12 cycle rallies across the city, leading up to the launch of the city’s first pop-up cycle lane. The Champions also ensured surveys and consultations organised by the city saw strong citizen participation from diverse groups—including women, children, and persons with disabilities.
