Ljubljana Cyclists’ Network (Ljubljanska kolesarska mreža – LKM) is an NGO based primarily on volunteers work and project-based contractual employment, however it has one full time employee. The objectives of the organization are: improvement of legal framework and conditions for cycling in Slovenia, the city of Ljubljana, and the urban region; increased awareness on cycling as healthy, and environmentally friendly mode of transportation; improved planning, design, and maintenance of cycling infrastructure in the city and country. Our funding is based on memberships, donations and on various, especially EU programs dedicated to cycling and urban mobility funding (LKM was a subcontractor to CIVITAS project CIVITAS Elan and Intelligent Energy Projects Champ, Mobile2020 and Bike-track-Bike. It was also a partner in European Cyclists Federation project “Cyclo-logistics” promoting bicycle for transportation of kids, supplies etc. Most recently – in 2015 – it has received CIVITAS Capital grant to carry out international conference on transformation of Ljubljana into a bike friendly city and a guided study tour on best practices of development of cycling system in Ljubljana).
