Abstract

This case study, ‘Cycling in Monrovia,’ underlines why the advantages of cycling are even greater in a city with conditions like Monrovia than in a developed city. Despite the advantages of cycling, bicycles are very rare on Monrovia’s streets. Therefore, this case introduces the major obstacles for cycling as identified during stakeholder surveys. They include the inadequate infrastructure, lack of safety and financial access as well as the ability to cycle. The case study also outlines five major intervention areas for making cycling on Monrovia’s streets safer and more attractive.
