'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.'

Green MEPs Eva Lichtenberger and Michael Cramer

'The Policy Department of the European Parliament has published a study evaluating the challenges and opportunities of developing a cycle tourism network across Europe.It focuses on EuroVelo, a network of 12 long-distance routes managed by the European Cyclists’ Federation, which is being developed in different countries by a wide range of partners. The Iron Curtain Trail is deemed to become the 13th route within this network.

The study reviews the market for cycle tourism in Europe and presents a EuroVelo demand model. It reviews the carriage of cycles on trains. Finally, it evaluates the potential of the Iron Curtain Trail.

The study can be downloaded here'.
