Summary of the project
The project’s objective is to create a virtuous mechanism to spread the knowledge of the culture of the bicycle, of cyclomechanics, of its care and maintenance in order to promote and boost the use of bicycle as a privileged mean of getting around Milan. To do that, the idea is to invest in facilitating the access to bicycles through the self-organization of bicycle repair shops, bike-sharing, opportunities for meeting in public space. ciclAbili is therefore a complex project that acts on several levels: a “training-educational” course, carrying out a cycle-mechanics course at the Ciclofficina Pontegiallo; a “social-community” one, with the organization of 8 events to promote the use of bicycles, with bicycle repair and maintenance activities in various places in the neighborhood; an “infrastructural” one, which aims to materially build a network of spaces.
- 10 participants to the courses; around 700 people of the neighbourhood
The project completed all the actions planned in the project:
For the awareness and promotion of cycling among the population of Municipality 2, which was based on public initiatives in significant locations in the area, has seen its complete remodelling with the implementation of a communication campaign on the social media of the two project partners: if, on the one hand, this partially allowed expectations to be maintained with respect to the volume of audience reached, what got damaged was the forecast regarding the interception of very different audiences.
