The “EU Cycling Strategy. Recommendations for Delivering Green Growth and an Effective Mobility in 2030” is the result of a systematic review of all EU policies related to cycling wherein approximately 1,000 people were involved. It is a joint project and campaign aimed at increasing cycling and bringing substantial added value to EU policy goals. Devised to inspire the EU Commission to develop their own EU Cycling Strategy, the aim is to remove fragmentation in the development of relevant policies across EU institutions and avoid inefficiencies in the expansion of local cycling strategies.
This strategy document has been put together by an expert group with 27 members, representing 15 governmental and non-governmental organisations, academia and business representations.
