Cycling cities for infants, toddlers, and caregivers

Being able to cycle safely around their city can have a profound impact on caregivers and children aged 0-3, yet there has so far been limited research into how cities that want to promote cycling can accommodate their youngest residents. This paper is based on interviews with caregivers and experts in early childhood, education, mobility, city planning, government and activism.

A joint publication by BYCS – an Amsterdam-based social enterprise – and the Bernard van Leer Foundation, it aims to inspire cities to ask how caregivers with infants and toddlers can be helped to get around by bike.
