Many governments and authorities started to build cycling infrastructure during the COVID-19 lockdowns. But were these developments temporary or the foundation of a permanent shift towards truly cyclable cities?

In this episode of WRI’s “Big Ideas Into Action” podcast, we hear about how many of those cities are starting to make this cycling infrastructure permanent, and why helping to get more people out of cars and onto bicycles is a good thing for them, for the cities, and for the environment as well.
