Problem status :

Most of the countries in Europe developing an infrastructure for cyclists, are built bike lanes and parking. People prefer to move around the city by bike, choosing the health and preservation of the environment. I live in the city Kharkov - it is the second largest city in Ukraine. We have almost no such infrastructure in general, even bicycle parking - only a couple of places in the city. Cyclists have to park behind fences and pipes. There are no road bike at all. There are about 6,000 cyclists in Kharkov, not so much, but the number is growing. We need to start with bicycle parking. Who better to address such a question? And where to get funding? How to take the government's attention to this problem?
