Cycling in Québec in 2020

Every five years since 1995, Vélo Québec has prepared a detailed report on cycling in Québec. Among the topics covered and analyzed in detail are cyclists’ habits, the economic, health and ecological benefits of cycling, and the prevalence and use of bicycle-friendly facilities. Based on this vast undertaking, we can identify trends, correlations and observations – and use this to prepare a comprehensive profile of what cycling is, does and means to Quebecers to enable well-informed decision-making on cycling in the future.
