Bicycle Account invitacion finalThe Bogotá 2014 Bicycle Account presents a preliminary English-language study of trends, perceptions and needs for cycling in Bogotá. It uses a combination of empirical data on bicycle infrastructure and use in Bogotá and survey data on social perceptions of bicycle use in the city.

The Bicycle Account was produced by Despacio, a Bogotá-based NGO that conducts research to promote quality of life in all stages of the life cycle, with a particular focus on sustainable transport and urban development. Despacio hopes to produce future bicycle accounts to monitor and better understand the situation in Bogotá. This report can also serve as a model for other cities around the world wishing to do similar work. Summary and full doc are available from here.
