The Germans wrote a nice book in English telling city leaders around the world how to get more people onto bikes. I haven’t read it all but it looks pretty comprehensive and attractive. Gives lots of due credit to places like Bogotá and Santiago de Chile for making their cities so remarkably bikeable.
If you’re keen on making the rest of South America into a more efficient, fun and creative place, check out this book and pass it along to your favorite mayor. “Cycling-Inclusive Policy Development: A Handbook” is free for download.
