In the big picture, biking and cycling are the unsung twin powerhouses of responsible, sustainable, eco and fair and conscious ... travel. In 2017 we celebrate the Sustainable Tourism for Development universe by asking readers, what are the good cycling experiences? How are locals benefiting from bike tours? What events are worth attending or paying attention?

A special shout to friends in Mexico City April 19-23. We would love to see your photos and video from the World Bike Forum. I'm not kidding. Having lived in the Centro Historico for several years, I always wanted to see cycling and that's become a real thing, particularly on Sundays.

Every time I see an adult on a bicycle I no longer despair for the future of the human race.

    Bikes in Mexico City:
    "Con un equipo de mil 114 bicicletas ubicadas estratégicamente en 84 cicloestaciones, el Gobierno del Distrito Federal buscará priorizar el uso de dicho vehículo y aumentar del 1.2 al 5 por ciento la utilización de este transporte, en beneficio del medio ambiente y la salud de los capitalinos, a través de la implementación del Sistema de Bicicletas Públicas de la Ciudad de México", más: www.stumbleupon.com/s/#1tvBKo/www.comsoc.df.g ob.mx/notici...

    The traditional city urban transport planning process has given rise to transport systems that result in higher car ownership, more and longer trips and less public transport. This has brought about community costs in terms of road fatalities and injuries, congestion, large capital investment,high personal transport costs and environmental degradation.

    Many cities in the world today are looking at enhancing their sustainability ... by including cycling and walking as part of their integrated transportation strategies.

    Is cycling a viable and safe option?
    source

    AUGUST 2010 News - Australia became the first country to make riding without a helmet illegal in 1991. Chris Rissel, from Sydney University's School of Public Health, says that helmets are creating a barrier to cycling, particularly spontaneous, short-trip cycling. In the ABC feature says that the Melbourne bike hire scheme - it's not working as well as it has in the rest of the world "because people don't walk around with a helmet just in case."
