European Cyclists’ Federation Launches Inaugural EU wide Cycling Barometer

This study by the European Cyclists’ Federation, released yesterday in the run up to next week’s Velo-City 2013 international conference, served as a strong reminder of how far ahead the old continent is in terms of bicycling culture, at least in comparison with South America, and presumably, Central and North America.

While traveling through South America over the past 19 weeks, I’ve only seen dedicated bike lanes in a few areas of Buenos Aires, Mendoza, Quito, Popayan and Medellin, and none in Bolivia or Peru (Cusco and Lima).

By the way – Slovenia ranked #12 among the 27 EU countries, pretty much where I expected it would fall in such a study.
