Benefits of cycling:

  • Society benefits from an urban km travelled by bicycle

    A kilometer covered by bike yields a social benefit of 0.68 euro, whereas cars and buses cost society 0.37 and 0.29 euros per km travelled respectively.

  • Cyclists spend more!

    Cyclists shop more locally, more often and are more loyal compared to car drivers. Although cyclists spend less per visit, they spend more overall because they shop more often than people driving.
  • Bicycle use reduces CO2 footprint

    Compared to cars and buses, the product life cycle of a bicycle generates minimal carbon emissions.
  • Cycling improves the local air quality

    Local air quality improves drastically when switching from cars to bicycles. Switching from car to bicycle reduces 65% NOx pollution per km travelled.
  • Cycling helps to improve the quality of our public space

    Public space will be improved by turning car parks into bike lanes and playgrounds with green areas to improve the local environment. Cycling is silent and helps to reduce traffic noise.
  • Riding a bicycle costs less!

    The annual cost of riding a bike is approx. 300 euros whereas the annual cost of driving a car is approx. 8500 euros.
