Save the Date - 28 February 2023, 14:00-15:30 (CET) for an European Cyclists' Federation (ECF) online event to mark the launch of a cargo bike friendly cities' dashboard and the unveiling of Europe’s cargo bike friendliest cities. The event will include a presentation of the dashboard, a keynote speech and a panel discussion with high-level speakers.

From tackling climate change to curbing congestion, cargo bikes have huge potential to address these challenges while improving overall levels of cycling and enhancing quality of life.

No less than 50% of urban trips related to the transport of goods could be shifted to cargo bikes. However, data on the wider picture is not readily available. How cargo bike friendly are European cities today? The ECF wanted to find out.

ECF systematically analysed the cargo bike friendliness of 125 European cities, looking at a range of criteria, including financial incentives, sharing schemes and projects. ECF’s new cargo bike friendly cities dashboard will facilitate ongoing comparison of data on cargo bikes between cities and serve as a crucial resource for policy officials, industry leaders, and climate and sustainable mobility advocates.
