Ankara Cyclists’ Shared Platform (shortly A.B.O.P in Turkish) was established in Ankara in 2014 by 12 cooperating cyclist groups riding with different purposes. The primary concern of the platform is to work out solutions to problems of safe cycling and to put them into effect on legal grounds and supervise the process. To this end, ABOP has been collaborating with non-governmental bodies, and has had support of organizations operating in similar or different issues. The future concern of ABOP, besides many other activities, is to collaborate with local and national administrations to increase the number of people using bicycles for commuting as well as increasing the awareness about cycling and safe riding.
