Abstract

Cycle tourism is a popular recreational activity in Europe where the distances between the places are relatively short and the itineraries are full of attractions and points of interest. Tourism by bicycle is expanding both at European and Italian level. At the basis of this phenomenon there is also an attitude of awareness of the risks for the environment and a progressive evolution of critical awareness towards more conscious consumption. Cycling in the suburban area, in particular for reasons related to leisure, sport and tourism, is usually linked to medium - long distance itineraries, put into a system with short distances, often also used by residents of the territories concerned. The cycling routes run along areas of great tourist attraction and in which there are multiple opportunities to visit historic cities, UNESCO sites or places with environmental value. The cycling route Adda project starts from the analysis and enhancement of the environment and the existing cycle network. The main objective of the research concerns the construction of a methodological tool to support the governance of the territory. The analysis and research developed through the comparison with other experiences with a focus on intermodal dimension of mobility. The main result of the project is that it provided a homogeneous and systematic framework of the efforts needed for the completion of the cycle path, articulated according to a priority logic. A framework in which, in relation to the specificities of each area, are indicated some of the design solutions, in the knowledge that a project of this importance should be implemented in an incremental manner, acting in multiple directions, through coordination of action and governance.
