During our campaign we have made two videos, designed some web posters and digital comics, designed a board game, identified critical bike lane points in the city, written a letter of protest to the city mayor, invited a local Car Club to present simulators to our students, organized a Cycling Day and started a Facebook community to spread the message about our project.
