As cities worldwide endeavor to make their transport portfolio more sustainable, cycling is increasingly relied on as an essential component. In Europe, especially in countries such as the Netherlands or Denmark, this interest is not recent at all but, on the contrary, in other countries as Italy it is quite new. The major consequence is that the infrastructure system must be gradually adjusted to the changing mobility and the integration of cycling paths must be outlined in urban mobility plans.
