All about cycling in the Netherlands

The Netherlands’ Cycling City 2018

Later today, the Netherlands’ Cycling City of 2018 will be announced by Stientje van Veldhoven, State Secretary for Infrastructure and Water Management on a cycle congress in Utrecht, organised by the Fietsersbond (Cyclists’ Union).

This year I was a member of the jury. The post you were expecting to see here now, will be published as soon as the winner has been made public.

Expected time of publishing: 14:15 CET (13:15 UTC) How much more time that is? See the countdown in the right hand column.

The nominees are: Etten-Leur, Houten, Veenendaal, Winterswijk and Zoetermeer. (In the links what I have previously written about 3 of these 5 nominees. The link for Veenendaal takes you to the blog “As Easy As Riding A Bike” from Mark Treasure.)

Etten-Leur made a promotional video in which the mayor explains why the town is very proud to be one of the nominees (in Dutch).
