Transforming transportation in Mexico City
Taller Comunitario Enchúlame la Bici, a group of bicycle activists, runs a community workshop in the Pensil neighborhood of Mexico City. Community members visit the communal space to learn bike mechanics, repair bikes, or build new ones from scratch using recycled parts. Enchúlame la Bici also influences urban mobility policy through conferences and public advocacy.
Enchúlame la Bici is so much more than a bike shop: they provide a safe space for youth to gather and find employment, support women’s leadership, and advance green transportation policy.
Enchúlame la Bici is an example of an emerging organization that, knitted together with other community efforts around the world, is shifting the landscape of sustainable development, local regenerative economy, green mobility, and youth and women’s leadership.
