About the Center

Cycling is enjoying increasing popularity in Ukrainian cities. However, there is no comprehensive and professional source of information, entity that provides clear information to municipalities on benefits of developing cycling infrastructure and, the most important, how to do it properly.

As more and more cities are implementing or are considering implementing cycling infrastructure, Kyiv Cyclists’ Association with the support of German International Cooperation (GIZ) has launched the Ukrainian Center for Cycling Expertise (UCCE). UCCE is an information hub accumulating all cycling-related documents and best practices useful for municipalities, traffic engineers and everyone interested in the development of cycling infrastructure. The center provides free access to all its information and is available at this web-site.

UCCE develops its activities with the following purposes:

  • to provide quality professional information to decision-makers, engineers and planners on development of cycling infrastructure;

  • to identify good and poor practices in the development of cycling infrastructure;

  • to develop recommendations for inclusion in technical and regulatory guidelines;

  • to share knowledge with and encourage active participation of local NGOs and civic initiatives;

  • to foster cycling in a strategic manner.

The Center is currently filling up its knowledge database. If you have any information, good illustrative photos to be published, or have ideas about any other way to cooperate, please contact the Center. Considering the target group of the UCCE’s work, most information will be available in Ukrainian only. English version will contain some information on current cycling developments in Ukrainian cities.

Ukrainian Center for Cycling Expertise is an advisory and information center that strategically aims at promoting cycling as an integral component of sustainable mobility in Ukraine.

Ukrainian Center for Cycling Expertise is a project of Kyiv Cyclists’ Association implemented with support of the Climate Friendly Mobility in Ukrainian Cities project of the German International Cooperation (GIZ) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.
