Explore the safe, comfortable, and extensive bicycle infrastructure of the Netherlands. Designed for bicycle advocates (and their spouses, partners, relatives, or friends), this tour will take travelers on a low-mileage, slow-riding bicycle journey to enjoy the well-designed streets of Delft, Utrecht, and Amsterdam. Community leaders, municipal planners, street engineers, community developers, business owners, placemakers, & artists will also fall in love with the Netherlands while immersing in pleasant streetscapes and public spaces, learning of historic challenges surrounding transportation, and experiencing the Dutch Sustainable Safety design first-hand. Through this experience, travelers will be empowered to bring about policy & design changes to streets back in the U.S. Of course, free time to explore via bicycle, tram, train, and foot/wheels is built in and longer group or solo rides are possible each day.
Your tour will feature 1-3 tour guides depending on group size.
