Summary

The ECF French member organisation, FUB, achieved great success with their advocacy activities and specifically the campaign 'Parlons Vélo' during the 2017 French presidency campaign. With their website that tracked the role of bicycles in the various presidential campaigns, they managed to reach the French political sphere from parliamentary candidates all the way to President Macron. Parlons Vélo’s campaign was then picked up by the French Minister of Transportation who announced a new ambitious cycling plan and the creation of a € 350 million national cycling fund of over 7 years.
