Guidance for Cycling Projects in the EU

The European Commission has published a comprehensive website with guidelines for cycling projects in the EU. The target group is practitioners in city administrations with responsibility for cycling and/or sustainable transport, as well as interested other stakeholders involved in urban cycling. The guide is divided into 9 topics. We give you some hints:
