Hi, my name is Lucian and I am from Sibiu, Romania. My interest in urban planning has steadily grown since I have written my thesis about cycling tourism in southern Transilvania for my master’s degree in geography of tourism.
While researching for my paper I inevitably stumbled upon literature regarding the so many facets of cycling, including cycling from an urban planning perspective. I have since then been very keen to understand how cycling can
be used to make our cities more liveable. Needless to say, I have been cycling back then and I still ride my bike, both for commuting and for leisure.
Although I now work in IT, my wife and I have founded an NGO that advocates for better cycling and walking infrastructure in our city. We are also part of a national network of NGO’s that organize an event called Street Delivery,
the romanian equivalent of “Reclaim the streets” movements worldwide.
This is the Facebook page of our NGO: https://www.facebook.com/asociatiadevelop
