The European Cycling Challenge 2014 has just been launched. The first round of the European Cycling Challenge was held in 2012 as part of CIVITAS PLUS, when the City of Bologna and its Public Transport Authority, SRM, launched a campaign at European level in which participating cities competed to cover the most kilometres by bike.
