// Cycling at the heart of sustainable development

Mobility is a crucial part of everyday life. It improves personal productivity and allows people to be more independent. Cycling is an effective response to
sustainable development issues. It is the fastest means of transportation for urban trips up to 8 km. (Vélo Québec, 2009) Cycling is also zero greenhouse gas emission, which means zero environmental impact. Moreover, it can be revalorized many times, it has a life span of several decades. Biking enables leisure activity and daily exercise, and contributes to the improvement of public health.
