Under the flag of the Tour de Force, a national cycling agenda has been drawn up with the aim to reach 20% more cyclists in the next ten years. This State and second chamber adopted this ambition. His interest is particularly on the challenge of how cities can grow and how on the other hand the vitality and liveability of cities can be guaranteed. The bicycle can play an important role in maintaining and strengthening the vitality and liveability of cities.
