LET'S BIKE--THE 10 POINT PEDALLING ACTION PROGRAMME TO SUPPORT CYCLING

As a modern and personal mode of transport, the bicycle meets the needs of individuals for speed and flexibility as well as the demands of society for environment-friendly and sustainable transport. Furthermore, the bicycle is an important economic factor in tourism and its use promotes good health. At the 11th VeloCity Conference in April 1999, experts, lobbyists, and users from all over the world exchanged their experiences and developed ideas. As the potential of cycling has not been exhausted in any country, a 10-Point Pedaling Action Program was devised and is reported in this article. It includes basic requirements for the greater promotion of the bicycle in policy development and society. Image and use of the bicycle must be improved and necessary infrastructure must be provided.
