Subsidizing e-bikes and pedal bikes in Europe

I mentioned in another post the numbers of bikes, e-bikes, and e-scooters had increased greatly in the 3 years between our visits to Paris. Maybe this has something to do with it.

France will now pay you €4,000 (nearly US $4,000) to swap your old polluting car for a cleaner, more efficient, and more city-appropriate electric bicycle. That marks a major increase in the incentive designed to improve French cities.
