Politicians say Madrid's shared electric bicycle scheme, due to launch this month, can change the lives of citizens – but others warn it will put their lives in danger.Pascual Berrone, from Madrid's IESE business school, meanwhile, said Spaniards were keen to get on their bikes but did appear reluctant to ride in Madrid due to safety concerns.Sales of bicycles in Spain recently surpassed those of cars, Berrone said – but in central Madrid, very few people use their bikes because of a lack of joined-up, dedicated cycle lanes and other infrastructure.The city hall said bicycle use in Madrid increased by 17 percent from 2012 to 2013 . Madrid currently has just over 300 kilometers of cycle lanes and has promised 70 kilometers more.
