"The invention of the bicycle by Karl Drais in 1817 was probably also the start of the first mobility revolution of the modern age. Today, the bicycle is on the fast track and its popularity is increasing like that of no other means of transport. Bicycles are a symbol of active mobility and successful in-novation.

Cycling is also being promoted by the spread of digital technology: it makes cycling simpler and increases the comfort and safety of cyclists."
