My name is Daria Besedina, I am an architect and sustainable city advocate (and a member of the Miscow City Duma currently).
I set a personal example cycling year-round for transport, and explain to the public and to decision makers why cycling is so important. Cycling in Moscow is still largely unpopular and is seen mostly as a sport or leisure activity. My goal is to emphasize the importance of cycling as a part of a healthy, sustainable transportation policy, to make it mainsream and mass.
