Dutch Cycling Embassy visited the Channel Island—and self-governing UK dependency—of Jersey. This was following up from a two-day study tour of Delft and Utrecht we organized last year for a high-level delegation from their Department of Transport. Joining the DCE’s Chris Bruntlett were Shelley Bontje of Mobycon and Syb Tjepkema of Gemeente Zwolle.
Located 21 km. off the coast of Normandy, the Balliwick of Jersey presents a unique challenge and opportunity for the Dutch Cycling Embassy: a small, self-governing island with more cars than people, where the vast majority of trips are under 5 km., yet two-thirds of those journeys are driven (alone).
The Dutch experts spent the week working on a Sustainable Transport Policy looking to convert a number of those trips to the more scale-appropriate (e-)bike, based on their experience working on similar schemes in the Netherlands. We look forward to returning in July to continue our work with a series of public and private events designed to engage the business, tourism, advocacy, and public health communities.
