According to the new study…there are an estimated 2.295 billion cycle tourism trips in Europe with a value in excess of €44 billion per annum.

“France has seen an important growth in cycling tourism in the past few years, so I’m really happy to see a conference like this take place in Nantes. France wants to become Europe’s Number 1 cycling tourism destination,” explains Lebrun.
