Cycling Festival Europe
As a cycling nation with more bicycles (22,5 million) than people (17 million) and with our cycling culture in our DNA, the Netherlands is offering a Cycling Festival to Europe, providing a stage to the growing cycling culture in European cities and countries.
During the Dutch presidency, we aim to increase the number of cycling kilometers with several activities organized or sponsored by the Dutch Embassies throughout capitals in EU countries in cooperation with local stakeholders. This can be all sorts of events such as public events to get as many people on the bicycle, or workshops to bring together local officials and stakeholders to generate ideas to better integrate bicycles into urban transportation systems.
The festival website provides an overview of the activities that are ongoing in Europe during the Dutch presidency.
