Fact-Finding Visit La Vuelta Barcelona

11 September 2023

From September 5th to 7th, 2023, the Dutch Cycling Embassy visited Catalonia as a part of a Fact-Finding Visit to Spain organized by the NBSO (Netherlands Business Support Office) focused on the topic of bike mobility.

The delegation consisted of 19 experts from 15 public and private organizations working in fields such as bike planning, parking, production, and sharing. They were joined by the Netherlands Ambassador to Spain Roel Nieuwenkamp.

Participants from the DCE network included the City of Amsterdam, Bike.Box, BYCS, Fietshangar, Fietsvlonders, Humankind, Mobycon, Mobian, Swapfiets, and STREET-STUFF!

Taking place the week after the famed Vuelta España race passed through Barcelona, program highlights included exchanges with the Municipality of Barcelona, a walking tour of local Superblocks, a day trip to Girona via high-speed train, and a cycling tour of the Barcelona Gothic Quarter and Waterfront.

With several follow-up activities with Barcelona already planned later this year, we’re excited to help that region on their journey towards becoming more bike-friendly.
