26 PRESTO in Venice: promoting cycling 1 ) No bici, no party The No bici No party campaign is all about bringing city decision makers and local cyclists closer together for three reasons. To reward and encourage current cyclists, collect data on bicycle path level of use and information from cyclists useful to bicycle plan implementation and bicycle path network management and to inform cyclists on facilities available. It consists of a one day event, where stands at 5 cycling points of the City will count and reward cyclists, get them to fill in a brief questionnaire and give them information about bicycle related facilities (bike sharing, bike parking etc).

27 PRESTO in Venice: promoting cycling 2 ) The Green Mile Project The Green Mile project is a sustainable mobility education project with primary schools which places emphasis on the bicycle through a competition which is points based. Classes are in competition with each other and the winning class is that which carries out the most home school journeys in the most sustainable manner. It aims to : educate primary school children and their families on sustainable mobility encourage them to travel in a sustainable manner to school encourage cooperative processes between parents children and teachers to foster cycling.
