A new report by the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) says that cycling creates economic benefits of €513 billion in EU member states – equivalent to over €1000 per person.

The report says that the benefits of cycling occur not only in specific, isolated fields like transport or environmental policy, but in many other areas such as like industrial policy, employment, health and social policy. 

This report is ECF’s second calculation of the internal and external benefits of cycling linked to the current level of cycling in the EU’s 28 member states.
