In a bid to reach younger audiences with a safe cycling message, Gdansk City Council has released an interactive DVD entitled The Cyclist's Handbook.

Created by a Gdansk-based audiovisual production company, in cooperation with the Traffic Department of the Voivodeship Police in Gdansk, this interactive computer program teaches the principles and rules of smart cycling. The Cyclist Handbook is mainly geared towards young cyclists aged 9-11 years who want to pass the national Bicycle Card Exam and start cycling on the roads. It is structured around seven main interactive challenges: a cycle test course, traffic signs, traffic scenarios, simulations, games, tests and a virtual city. The young student is required to analyse the situation and make the right decision accordingly. The programme has various levels allowing the child to chart their progress and improve. The DVD is an important and useful awareness-raising tool that compliments two of Gdansk's current measures, which cover mobility management and education as well as new cyclists. 400 of the 1,000 DVDs have already been distributed, mostly at an outdoor cycling event organised in cooperation with the Police Traffic Department, on 30 May 2010. DVDs will also be distributed as prizes to children during MIMOSA Mobility Week and as interesting promotional material for other planned outdoor events by the City of Gdansk within the MIMOSA Project.
