Pre & Post programme (closed)

Are you planning on staying in the Netherlands a bit longer? Our country has a lot to offer and therefore we are proud to offer you pre and post programmes to let you experience cycling in various other Dutch cities. If you would like to experience Dutch cycling and learn/see more about the our cycling culture we hope you will join one or more programmes on the days before and after the congress.

The programmes are being hosted by the local Municipalities and Provinces. Most of the programmes consist of an experience part (cycling or walking tour by a local cycling expert) and a presentation or session where further knowledge is shared.

The pre and post programme events are being coordinated by the Dutch Cycling Embassy in commission of Velo-city 2017. For more information about the Dutch Cycling Embassy, please visit our website:
