Green Deal Bicycle ‘Making an impact with more cycling kilometers’

  • Innovative sustainable metropolis
  • 100,000 more people by bike in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. We are working on this together with companies, municipalities, educational and knowledge institutions! Because cycling is good for the environment and it is good for your health.
