Manuel's work aims to put in motion the "Mi Bici" scheme, and to encourage extensive bicycle use through tripartite involvement: local government, private and resident initiatives. With a specific design for the largest of Mexican cities, the citizens can acquire a bike worth $2000 for $500, with the other 75% covered by the private initiative. Local governments commit to building the necessary cycle lane infrastructure and bike parking stations. The goal is to significantly reduce childhood obesity in Mexico and in turn the incidence of diabetes. The bikes are not given out free as a welfare program, but are sold in order to gain unswayed participation by our youth.
