1. Advocacy: More people cycling – good for business, good for the planet, good for people.
When people cycle more, its good for everyone, not just the person on the bike. And to get people cycling we need great places to ride and to make sure everyone who wants one has access to a bike. This provides additional business opportunities and ensures industry growth across different sectors
Through the advocacy of CIE and our allies we make sure governments at every level know why they should invest in cycling and have positive cycling policies. We influence policymakers and ensure that the sector is well represented in national and EU policies and measures, and secures sufficient national and EU investment across the continent.
- Active monitoring of developments in markets and legislation
- Direct contact with key decision makers and stakeholders
- Building alliances and partnerships
- Expert Group work
- High-level policy events, workshops and webinars
CIE informs policymakers of the economic, social and environmental benefits of the cycling sector as a whole and showcases the work of our members in clean mobility, shared mobility, electric mobility, sustainable leisure, ITS, connected cycling and industrial policy topics such as sustainability.
In addition, we make an annual donation to the work of the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF), supporting their expertise in lobbying for cycling infrastructure, cycle tourism and road safety which all help get more people on bikes.
2. Market Intelligence & Communications
Through CIE, our members have access to wider cycling industry insights; through reports and member-only webinars (e.g. for COVID-19 response). Our Market Impact and Intelligence Expert Group gathers forecasts for different sectors within the industry and conducts a variety of market surveys – recent ones include CIE Business Impact Survey (1) and (2), and the first European Cargo Bike Industry Survey.
We also keep our members up to date on what is happening in the sector, in terms of new developments, policies and measures, and projects via our social media channels, regular mailings and our newsletter.
3. Industrial leadership
CIE provides a leadership platform for the many sectors of the industry to stimulate innovations, growth and strengthen the business sector in cycling. Our Expert Groups create policy positions, influence policy or regulation, share information and benefit from international networking with professional and business contacts. CIE also takes part in projects and provides important funding so that ECF can stimulate cycling projects across Europe and lobby for more allocations. These projects, which include a wide range of stakeholders, allow us to research and disseminate new initiatives in the cycling sector, showing the importance of cycling both to national governments and EU policymakers. Members are free to join one or more groups.

Why we joined
"We know that we have to win the support of governments if we want to double cycling in Europe and continue to strengthen the cycling industry for the benefit of all companies. I think every European cycling company should join Cycling Industries Europe in order to increase the importance of the bicycle in cities of the future. I am delighted to take a place in the group."
"nextbike has joined CIE because we are convinced that the cycling industry needs to become more visible in Europe and demonstrate its positive impacts on the society. An association like CIE can be the perfect forum to achieve this. My personal focus within CIE is to support building a network of bike sharing service operators who collectively work towards mutually benefitting topics."
