The mobility model based on automobiles not only harmful because of its environmental effects, the use of non-renewable sources of energy or because it takes up too much space in cities and towns. It has also become a problem for guaranteeing access to the goods and services that the population requires, and the leading cause of degradation of our towns and cities.
In this context, the Regional Government of Andalusia's Ministry of Development and Housing is promoting a sustainable mobility model in which cycling plays a major role. Cycling is a means of transport that has no negative impact on the environment and primary energy consumption; it is beneficial for people's health; and its cost is affordable. Furthermore, cycling is the fastest and most effective means of transport for a very large percentage of the journeys made in our cities and towns.
