  • Bicycles outsold cars for the 14th year running with almost 1.4 million bicycles sold.
  • National cycling participation rates decreased slightly from 2011.
  • Cycling is being integrated in broader transport planning and land use planning.
  • "20-Minute Neighbourhoods" are being developed to increase short trips and improve livability.
  • Bicycle facilities are increasingly being designed with separation from motor vehicles.
  • Street design and speed limits are being used to facilitate street purpose.
  • A "Safe Systems" approach is being adopted to improve bicycle safety.
