Cyclists’ Union is a voluntary association which advocates the improvement of conditions for cycling as efficient, sustainable and healthy means of transport. We advocate for and work on the transformation of the cities into clean, safe, comfortable and green urban areas, promoting the ‘cities for people’ approach and cycling as a desirable way of transport.

Through workshops, education and other promotional projects we provide safer conditions for cycling and increase the quality of life in urban areas. We believe that priority in traffic planning should be given to the needs of pedestrians, cyclists and to public transport.

Our association also acts as a platform that gathers experts from the field of transport, urban planning, energy efficiency, pedagogy, social science, education and rehabilitation science as well as ecology. We are recognized in the region as one of the leading organizations of civil society in the area of ​​bicycle traffic.

Infrastructure section

Infrastructure section’s objectives are the expansion of cycling infrastructure  (development of a functioning and sustainable plan for the future of bicycle paths and lanes in Zagreb, forming an item in the city budget intended for the construction of cycling infrastructure regardless of the rhythm of reconstruction of the street), the improvement of existing paths (the removal of obstacles and interruptions, lowering excessive curbs) and eliminating black spots for cyclists. In addition, we systematically work to improve regulations related to cycling and road construction, legalization and facilitating the bicycle commuting through the city and spreading the 30 km/h zones in the city districts.
