In the research, interviews were conducted with 6 participants, and “descriptive analysis” and “content analysis” methods were used to analyze the data. In the findings of the research; Participants’ views on the factors that constitute national cycling policies in popularizing bicycle use were revealed. Themes related to these are; It is coded as a) education b) health c) environmental awareness d) organizational structures e) legal framework f) sports and recreation g) bicycle tourism h) cultural adaptation ı) economic budget j) purpose awareness k) transportation system. As a result, by evaluating the current situation of the bicycle in Turkey, its infrastructure and legal requirements, its multifaceted nature and its contribution to the management goals separately and as a whole, we have developed a framework that encourages, popularizes, participates and coordinates the use of bicycles, with short and long-term concrete targets.
