According to the survey, cyclists do not wear a helmet and carry backpacks
The majority of the cyclists that circulate in the São Paulo capital are made up of men without a helmet and carrying backpacks, who use the bicycle at peak times to get to and from work. The profile was traced by the Ciclocity survey (Association of Urban Cyclists of São Paulo).
The research was carried out on the roadways of Vergueiro street, in the south zone, and in the Inajar de Souza avenues, in the north zone, and Eliseu de Almeida, in the west zone. Data were collected on days 2, 9 and 16 of this month. Cyclists’ most frequent rides were in the morning and afternoon peaks, indicating the use of the routes to get to and from work, according to Cyclocity participation director Daniel Guth.
We Find That People Are In Their Work Clothes, Few Are In Sports Clothes, Leisure.
The distribution of cyclists in the exclusive routes is greater between 7am and 9am and from 5pm to 7pm. By hour, the three cycle routes count, on average, 76 people pedaling in both directions.
In Eliseu de Almeida avenue, which already had part of the path delimited in the central bed before its official opening, the amount of cyclists increased this year. Compared with another survey conducted on-site by Cyclocity in 2012, the number of cyclists throughout the day increased 53%, from 580 to 888. At the same site, the proportion of female cyclists rose from 20 to 60 a day. “In the central region, I see a lot of children in pushchairs, with parents or siblings, pedaling together. It shows that the traffic is being humanized,” says Guth.
The participation director of Cyclecity charges expansion of cycling infrastructure in the city, which should expand the demand for bicycles. ‘We cyclists’.
In the afternoon of (23), the report found, for 30 minutes, 13 cyclists using the bike path of Vergueiro Street, on the corner of Rua Correia Dias, in Paraíso. “I want to leave my car and my bike to work on my bike,” said political scientist Flávio Álvares, 36, who lives 6.5 kilometers from work in the Jardins. “With bike paths, they are respecting cyclists more, but I think the City had to build more than the 400 kilometers it is promising,” says bike courier Eduardo Lima, 30.
On a public agenda with cyclo-activists via sportingology.com, yesterday, the municipal transport secretary, Jilmar Tatto, said that by December 31, all 28 municipal bus terminals will have bike racks. “At least 15 terminals already have them and everyone will have them by the end of the year.” The bicycle racer gives safety to the cyclist because he keeps his bicycle, there are people who take care of him.”Said the secretary.Colaborated, Monica Reolom.
