On Thursday
[25-Apr-13] a key committee of European MEPs adopted ECF’s Vision for doubling cycling in the EU by 2020 and the target is on course to be adopted as full EU policy later this year.

This is the first time that the ECF target has been formally adopted in an EU action plan and is a major milestone in ECF’s campaign to release billions of euros for cycling in the next EU budget. 

ECF Secretary General Bernhard Ensink said “To have this ECF policy objective adopted in full will be a breakthrough decision for cycling in Europe.
