20th International Congress of the Club des villes et territoires cyclables
The Club des villes et territoires cyclables, established in 1989 by 10 pioneering cities, now gathers over 1300 local authorities: municipalities, cities, counties, regions. It is a major player in the promotion of cycling, active mobility and urban development policies: a network of elected officials committed to the development of daily cycling and sustainable mobility. It participates in all the major debates, in France and abroad, for a better sharing of the street, for the development of sharedzones, for the safety of cyclists and pedestrians in order to encourage sustainable mobility. The bicycle being a link in the chain of travel, the Club des villes et territoires cyclables favors an approach which takes all means of transport into account – in order to reduce the importance of the automobile and to increase the share of cycling, walking and public transport.
