Takebikethecity.xyz is a try to spark change. An open source graphic lexicon reclaiming public space for urban cycling in our cities (starting by mine, Madrid). Its form will expand and change through collaboration open to everyone. Design can modify behaviours, let ́s start with simple steps!
We (all) want to claim back the city as a happy urban environment. Mobility is an essential part of city life, and it can be so much better.
We (all) want to promote healthy, sustainable and democratic means of transport, with the bicycle playing a key role – not only as a means of transport, but as vehicle for a new way of understanding the urban space.
We (all) feel the need to change a scary journey among cars into an enjoyable one.
We (all) can be creative and explore alternative ideas for sharing the urban space.
We (all) can take part in shaping the city landscape and help bring positive change.
OUR pleasant city is OUR pleasant life.
