'Cycling is increasingly important in the EU, not just for short journeys in cities but also as a thriving activity in the tourism sector. Over the last two decades cycling has grown by 20% a year. For the first time we have successfully included a category for bicycle tourism in the 2009 budget. We hope this will help to improve sustainable cross-border tourism by bike and train.

The transport committee has earmarked €300,000 to support in particular the EuroVelo trails and the "Iron Curtain Trail" bicycle route. One of the main aims is to have more combined train and bike offers to reduce CO2 emissions in the tourism sector.

Now it is up to the budget committee to follow the transport committee's recommendations and include a category for bicycle tourism in the 2009 EU-budget.'
