9 Call for Action: How to make cycling a priority for the new European Parliament Dear Member of European Parliament candidate, Welcome to the ECF European Parliament 2014 election survey! Cycling has seen a true comeback over the past 10 years in Europe. 250 million Europeans are already cycling – 61 million every day and a further 86 million a few times a week. We invite you to answer this short survey which focuses on 10 key issues related to cycling policy at the European level. This is a unique opportunity for you to build a relationship with the cycling community. The survey should take no more than minutes to complete. We will close the survey April 21. ECF will publish the individual results before the elections in the week of May 5 - 9, giving you a maximum of visibility towards your electorate. Thank you for participating! Manfred Neun ECF President
