UCI BIKE CITY LABEL
The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has relaunched its UCI Bike City label to support and reward those cities and regions who invest in developing community cycling and related infrastructure. The first UCI Bike City label, to be awarded at next year’s UCI Road World Championships in Doha, will be for a period of four years and will be based on a city’s strategy combining– showcasing elite cycling with UCI events and investing in cycling for all.
A dedicated UCI team has been established to support cities and regions to help them develop and benchmark their plans and share best practice. Cities and regions will be assessed according to a broad range of criteria which demonstrate how elite cycling events can work best hand in hand to achieve long lasting goals in bringing cycling to all:
- Ambition of strategy;
- Dedicated funding;
- Protected bike lanes;
- Safety for cyclists;
- Cycle training;
- Measuring progress.
Each of these criteria will carry a weighting with strategy, ambition and bike lanes carrying the maximum weighting of 15 points each.
