National cycling strategies are growing in prominence but there is still long way to go

On 22 December 2022, the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) published the 2022 edition of the “The state of national cycling strategies” report, hereby providing a comprehensive overview of the status of national cycling strategies in 44 European countries.

The full report is available to download here.

Our analysis shows that national cycling strategies are growing in prominence, but that there is a still long way to go in many countries, particularly considering the political objective set by the pan-European Master Plan for Cycling Promotion that every country must develop and implement a national cycling strategy by 2030. The Master Plan was adopted in May 2021 and applies to 54 countries.

Key new developments in the report, compared to the 2021 edition, include:

  • Italy adopting its first ever national cycling strategy.
  • England publishing its Second Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy.
  • France publishing a new Cycling and Active Mobility Plan 2022-2027.
  • The Czech Republic adopting a Concept for Urban and Active Mobility 2021-2030.
  • Luxembourg adopting a new National mobility plan 2035 with a dedicated section on cycling.
