Freedom by bicycle – promoting cycling for everyone

Being able to cycle and have access to a bike creates freedom for the individual. It enables movement – both on a physical and mental level. In a smaller neighborhoods with limited public transportation, a bicycle can be crucial for social activities. In this project, Cykelfrämjandet connects with adults living in socio-economically vulnerable areas that do not know how to cycle. The results of the cycling courses will be evaluated and a follow-up will be done after six months, to identify cycling habits and see how the quality of life for each individual participant has been affected.
