First Bicycle Mayor

With urban development, issues surrounding the bicycle produce more and more and more serious, 

bicycle advocacy organization "ride space" proposed the establishment of "bicycle mayor" of the 

post, to specifically address these issues.

The idea is that the semi-official "night mayor" inspired. Amsterdam is known for its nightlife 

with debauchery, all kinds of clubs and raves in the evening especially greedily, fun people often 

middle of the night all the way out of the store is still noisy, even defecate seriously interfere 

with the surrounding residents.


In 2014, at the initiative of non-governmental organizations, well versed in the nightclub doorway 

meters Legislative Branch as Milan's first "night mayor" coordination between City Hall, the public

 and nightclubs. He pioneered a series of measures, such as the part of the club issued a 24-hour 

license, etc., to minimize disturbance to the surrounding community, but not to delay the nightclub

 business, with great success.

Currently, the "night mayor" model in Europe to promote. NGO "ride space" is in April this year, 

organized by the "night mayor Summit" announced the launch of "bicycle mayor" program.

"Cycling space" presentation, the "mayor" independent of the government, in fact, employed by 

non-governmental organizations, there is no direct executive power, but is responsible for 

communication with the government and people, listen to all opinions and suggestions for the 

promotion of cycling travel advice.

After a series of video applications and public vote, a panel of experts from the Amsterdam 

genuine mayors, municipal officials and bicycle enthusiasts in July to elect the world's first "

sBike mayor" - a well-known bicycle brand manager Lut satisfied.

When a reporter asked in the "bicycle capital" to promote bike to have difficulty, she smiled: "For

 us cyclists too common, usually have to let us get bored, we forgot why we ride ...... although 

this than the advance in many cities, but we still have a lot of work to do - to maintain the 

status of a bike, cycling for the next generation to improve the environment. "

Lute Na cited an example. Downtown shopping streets to road reconstruction, but many shops against 

the government to broaden the bike lanes, traffic-free. Even in bicycles dominated the Amsterdam "

shopkeepers still think customers will drive to visit, even if it is not true. They ingrained this 

concept, we need to change them."


[ "Green" travel New Challenges]

Lute Na grew up riding a bike. In her view, different from the past and now Amsterdam, to get more 

people to carefree riding, there are many new problems to solve.

The first is for the residents to develop a new habit. In the outer suburbs or the new West and 

other places frequented by migrants, many people do not have the habit of riding a bicycle, adults 

often drove their children to school.

"Many people think these parents are cycling danger, the child is over 16 years old, they get a 

motorcycle or scooter, bicycle instead of" one "space ride" founder Maud de Vries said, "let the 

00kids ride there is a feeling of freedom, of course, but also conducive to good health, culture 

happiness, reduce stress, but in some places it did not think so good, we need to strive for this."

Second generation of urban development is accompanied by new road planning issues. For example, it 

is currently a lot of people how to ride smoothly reach new headache northeast from the city 

center. And the city where the body across a broad winding river Ai, the current in order to ride 

in the past, you have to detour several kilometers, from just east of the bridge across the river 

through, then all the way north about half a day. Otherwise, you have the bike onto the free ferry 

ride to go, the scenery along the way very well, but unfortunately too time-consuming, in terms of 

commuters unrealistic. It was suggested that dedicated to bike dig tunnels, but the cost is too 

high, and then build a new bridge, port managers who will stand up against, fearing new bridge will

 seriously affect their business.

"These are big problems," Lu Tena said, "sometimes there will be some small problems, such as the 

now popular wide tires, when parking is not put into old racks. Typically, you want to change 

anything, as the individual does not sound easy, but now people come to me with a problem, I will 

listen with ears ...... I can not everything can be solved, but this relates to the exchange, the 

town hall is very welcome to participate. we need to be innovative, or you will fall behind. "

Lu Tena received varied recommendations, such as the addition of ceiling in the bike lane, so that 

workers will not get wet ride rain; setting identification, telling visitors where to go street 

rider safety. "Bicycle mayor," said she would not listen to speak freely with prejudice, because 

the plan "the most critical is willing to try."
