The primary goal of the Bicycle Transportation Union is increasing the share of cyclists and the number of bicycle trips in Russia and continuously improving the safety for cyclists. There are many problems that need to be solved, so Russia’s cycling potential is not fully exploited. We have to focus not only on development of the infrastructure in Moscow, but also on issues like safety, fun experiences, rights, accessibility, service, maintenance and quality.
To get investments in physical improvements for cycle traffic, continuous campaigning is crucial in order to promote, motivate and secure cycling. Through campaigns we communicate with the inhabitants and promote bicycling as a liberating, fun and well functioning transportation form which is very important for social activities.
We hope to use the experience, collected from the ECF, to formulate our strategy.
We are a social non-commercial inter-regional organization Bicycle Transportation Union (BTU), which was founded in Moscow, Russia.
