European Cyclists’ Federation Calculates Benefits of Cycling

BRUSSELS, Belgium – The ‘Cycling Economy’ report clearly shows that the benefits of cycling occur not only in specific, isolated fields like transport or environmental policy, but in many other areas where the EU has competences as well, like industrial policy, employment, health and social policy. According to the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) who published the report, the current economic benefits of cycling are huge and over 500 billion euro for the EU 28.
