Study Visit: County Wexford

22 May 2023

In May, a group from Wexford, Ireland visited the Netherlands for a cycling study visit. On the first day, the group met in Nijmegen. Ruben Loendersloot (Loendersloot International) presented about the connectivity between urban and rural areas. The city of Nijmegen has several cycling highways that makes it easy to commute by bike from villages and new housing estates to the city center. During the bike tour in the afternoon, the group got to experience this themselves while cycling to Lent.


On the second day, the group travelled to Delft. Lotte Rijsman (Royal HaskoningDHV) presented about several topics, including behaviour change to stimulate cycling, safe cycling around school zones, mobility for children, mobility for women, communication and how to respond to backlash. In the afternoon, Lotte took the group on a bike ride through Delft and Pijnacker. Pijnacker is a smaller village next to Delft with a seamless connection from one to the other.


On the final day, the group was accompanied by André Pettinga and Jocelyn Kemker – de Kruijf. André presented about the city of Utrecht and why it is such a great cycling city. Jocelyn talked about communication and framing. After a short bike ride along the highlights of Utrecht, we discussed the main take aways from the study visit with the group.
