Our mission

Cycling for Everyone

We want to share our expertise and technology as the world’s number one cycling country to facilitate cycling worldwide as the most modern, efficient and sustainable method of transport. The growing interest in Dutch practices in urban transport is mainly due to a transition of the transport sector towards sustainability and the rediscovery of the bicycle as a means of transport. Cycling not only contributes significantly to urban mobility, road safety and emission reductions, but has also positive impacts on the economy, social inclusion and health.

Worldwide the Netherlands has the highest bicycle use and provides the widest range of cycling know-how, products and infrastructure. With over 40 years of experience in bicycle policy and practical bicycle solutions, the Netherlands are a unique international testing ground. It is our mission to share this experience with you.
