The European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) has published a survey of cycling accomplishments in all 27 EU-countries. Establishing the rankings for a top 27 wasn’t easy according to the ECF, because the statistics from these countries were not easily comparable. Therefore the statistics of 5 Europe-wide surveys were used within the context of the so called ECF Cycling Barometer. The following indicators emerged from these surveys: daily bike usage, cycling tourism, lobbying, bicycle sales, and bicycle safety. The daily bike usage is highest in the Netherlands. Bike sales are better in Denmark. The Danish people also score better in lobbying (through the number of members in the Cyclists' Union).
See the results for all of these countries here. The Netherlands and Denmark finished in joint first place, while the ECF concludes that there’s still quite a lot of room for improvement especially in Southern and Eastern Europe. The ECF expects that interest groups, wish list at hand, will be able to motivate their authorities to invest more in cycling.
