Handshake

CIVITAS Handshake is on a mission to make cities cycle-friendly. To do this, it is gathering 13 cities from all corners of Europe to share and inspire cycling excellence.

About the project

CIVITAS Handshake will support the transfer and uptake of cycling measures developed by three pioneering “Cycling Capitals“ - Copenhagen (Denmark), Amsterdam (the Netherlands) and Munich (Germany) - to ten further European cities.

Areas of focus include cycling policy and planning, infrastructure design, modelling and assessment, and awareness and education. Under Handshake, cycling expertise and knowledge will be shared through transfer processes and mentoring programmes.

The ten “Future Cycling Capitals” that will immediately benefit from working with Handshake's Cycling Capitals and project experts are Bordeaux (France), Bruges (Belgium), Cadiz (Spain), Dublin (Ireland), Greater Manchester (UK), Helsinki (Finland), Krakow (Poland), Riga (Latvia), Rome (Italy) and Turin (Italy). These cities are drawn from diverse geographical, socioeconomic and planning contexts that will help maximise learning beyond Handshake as the project matures.

By helping make urban environments more suitable places for cycling as an everyday transport mode, Handshake will help maximise its modal share and realise the common goals of managing congestion and improving public safety and health.
