The Central Bohemian Region plans to launch a grant program for cycling infrastructure in August, specifically for the construction of main cycle paths and the establishment of bike boxes and bike towers. On June 6, the regional council approved the allocation of 22 million crowns, but the program still needs to be approved by the regional assembly.

Municipalities, towns, and their associations will be able to apply for the funds, Josef Holek from the regional office informed ČTK.

According to the regional councilor for public transport, Petr Borecký (STAN), many places in the region lack connections between cycle paths, and their distribution is also uneven. „We intend to change that by supporting municipalities with their projects and accelerating the construction of cycling infrastructure through generous support,“ Borecký said.

The grants can be used for new bike storage facilities, such as the establishment of bike towers, bike rooms, or bike boxes at train or bus stations.

The leadership of the Central Bohemian Region recently prepared a new Cycling Concept. This strategic document sets priorities for the development of cycling and cycling transport in the region. It contains comprehensive information about the current state of cycling tourism and the needs of towns and municipalities for the next six years. The upcoming grant program is based on this concept. Currently, 503 kilometers of cycle routes run through the Central Bohemian Region.
