Bicycle is a high potential sector that generates each year in France € 4.5 billion in economic benefits and gathers 35,000 jobs.

All stakeholders are mobilised to meet the challenges of the sector and promote cycling :

- the State by developing an appropriate legal framework ;

- local authorithies, through their management and incentive policies ;

- industries, thanks to their know-how in design and innovation ;

- the engineering companies, by their expertise and comprehensive analysis of needs ;

- the tourism sector, by promoting leisure cycling ;

- the associations, through the organisation and facilitation of collective events.

In 2014, France has decided to strengthen its support to active mobility by launching an action plan : 25 concrete measures to confirm bike as an efficient means of transport.
