Nantes has introduced an ambitious Cycle Plan for the Greater Nantes area as part of the Urban Mobility Plan.
Greater Nantes (Nantes Metropole) encourages changes in travelling patterns and helps citizens shift to new habits, in particular via the development of major cycling routes.
Nantes Metropole has driven several actions to give priority to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport.
In 2015, the two main cycling corridors heading north/south and east/west, linked to the existing lanes, have been planned to reach the heart of Nantes.
Over four days (2-5 June), the conference will gather more than 1,000 cycling experts, traffic planners, cycling advocates, architects, educators, politicians from all over the world, who will be giving advice on everything related to cycling. Nantes Metropole has not been involved in this event only for these four days: all along the year, the city organised conferences, training sessions, cyclotours, calls for projects to involve all local stakeholders.

Like Nantes Metropole, Utrecht (Netherland) leads an ambitious cycling policy.
Every day between 7a.m. and 7p.m., over 100,000 cyclists ride to their work, school, university, public transport, shops or home through the city centre. The municipality wants to make cycling even more attractive for these and other cyclists. Consequently, cycling is given priority in the mobility policy of the municipality. www.utrecht.nl/we-all-cycle
