Cycling the Dutch Way

A lesson in city cycling for beginners

Dutch people love to ride their bike. The Netherlands has more bicycles (22,8 million!) than people (17,4 million) and you will probably get why since it is the perfect way to get around. However, cycling can be feel intimidating, especially in Utrecht where the three busiest bike paths of the Netherlands are located. If you’re new to city cycling (or just rusty), it’s good to understand the basics, so you can start riding with confidence.

Join this free city cycling lesson to learn about the rules in a fun and interactive way. First, you’ll get a short lesson in the different traffic rules and road signs. The next step is to put your new knowledge in practice in the ‘traffic garden’. A police officer will guide you through the garden’s different traffic situations with real traffic lights, crossing barriers, a small roundabout, and more. It’s the perfect way to take what you have learned in class and apply it to real life situations.
