The plan aims to create a National System of Cycling Mobility (SNMC) to make this mode of travel a key component of the sustainable mobility system.

To achieve this, funding will be provided to increase the safety of cyclists, improve signage and create shared spaces and cycle paths.

For example, 400 million EUR is being provided in the years 2022–2026 to build at least 1,235 additional kilometres of tourist cycle routes and to carry out maintenance works on the existing network.

In addition, 200 million EUR has been allocated to construct urban cycle routes by June 2026. With this funding, 565 kilometres of urban routes will be constructed to strengthen connections between railway stations and universities.
