Usage of bikes as means of transport in France 2018, by frequency According to a survey conducted in early 2018, half of the surveyed French declared using the bike as a mean of transportation. However, 23 percent of them said to bike less than once a month and only five percent used the bicycle daily or almost daily as their transportation.  The vast majority of French surveyed by the French bicycle touring federation declared taking a bike for leisure activities, while almost a third said using it as a mean of transportation.  
Usage of bicycles in city areas in France

Strasbourg, Grenoble and Bordeaux were the cities with the highest percentage of employees who used the bike to go to work in France in 2015 : in these metropoles between 11 and 16 percent of the working population went to work cycling. In Paris only four percent of employees did so. This ratio appears to be more important when people commute within city-centers or big cities, which would be linked to the presence of better cycling infrastructures.  

Overall bicycle mobility goals in France

On the observation that daily bike use represents only three percent of all daily travels, the French government stressed in September 2018 a “Plan Vélo” (Bicycle Plan). This to increase the bicycle mobility until 2024, along with the goal of ensuring security and to better cycling infrastructures. most of French bike users seemed to still feel unsecure when cycling in cities in a survey conducted in 2017.
