Ferrara Cycling – Land and Water

Ferrara

The  Italian city of Ferrara, capital of the province of Emilia Romagna, partner in the Interreg IVC ‘Waterways Forward’ project, is keen to develop cycling as a way of promoting the use of Europe’s waterways marketing cycling as a tourism tool, encouraging sustainable transport and delivering well being for its citizens.  It  is a cycling city par excellence. Four out of ten trips are made by bicycle, and the bicycle is used by all social groups, by people of all age groups, by men and women, boys and girls, for all purposes, all over the year. Citizens of Ferrara say, that little children get their first bicycle before they have learned to walk. With this high share of cycling, Ferrara is not only by far Italy’s cycling city number one. It is also among the best cycling cities in Europe.  

Ferrara has taken part in the Central Europe Programme funded Bicy project – involving 10 partners across Europe. http://www.bicy.it/
