I grew up in the Dolomites in Italy. Bike tours, especially in the mountains, were one of my favorite activities as a kid. In my home region, transportation by bike, bus, and train, as well as their interconnection, is a core part of their mobility plan. I think comprehensive transportation planning empowers people to move in a safe and sustainable way and offers mobility and freedom to everyone.
