The main aims of project mobile2020 is to support and promote cycling in small and medium sized cities in 11 Central and Eastern European countries. During project implementation key stakeholders and responsible organizations had been informed about various issues which help to develop cycling friendly conditions in cities.

It is important to translate and adapt to the local conditions and need the existing guidelines and best practice examples. That will help to reach a wider audience of cities inhabitants.

Target groups:
• national multipliers
