The European Cycling Lexicon

An illustrated passport-sized booklet, containing key terms for cycling, different types of bikes for different mobility needs, and good cycling infrastructure in 27 languages, including all 23 official EU languages.

It also contains information on EU-funding sources for cycling and cycling infrastructure, and statistics on cycling in Europe and economic, health and environmental aspects of cycling.
This second edition of the Lexicon was officially launched at the international conference on cycling policy "Velo-city Global 2010" in Copenhagen. It is the first publications of its kind and was prepared by the EESC's Section for Transport, Energy, Infrastructure and the Information Society (TEN) in collaboration with the European Cyclists' Federation to respond to the strong demand from citizens, organisations and public authorities for further copies of the European Cycling Lexicon., The lexicon is indispensable for anyone who wishes  to cycle in another European country. It raises awareness, both among citizens and at different levels of governance, about the many advantages of cycling and the need for good cycling infrastructure.
A wiki-version, where citizens can further add languages and terms, is planned for fall 2010.
