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
