Welcome to Amsterdam Bike City!

Join Amsterdam Bike City! - for sharing cycling knowledge, insight and experience

The bicycle is important in Amsterdam, the region and the Netherlands. As a means of transport and as a means to make the city and the region liveable, safe and accessible. For over 40 years, Amsterdam and the region have been working on making cycling safe, easy and enjoyable for everyone. This makes Amsterdam an inspiring example for other cities and regions that want to become a cycling city.

We make this unique knowledge available via the bicycle platform Amsterdam Bike City. We do this through this website, with events and with a Bicycle Innovation Lab. In addition, we can learn from the ambitions and initiatives from other parts of the Netherlands and abroad. We therefore give others the opportunity to share their knowledge and submit questions to us.

Join our community!

With Amsterdam Bike City we develop a platform and a community. For everyone who cares about the bicycle, professionals, administrators, students, bicycle campaigners. Amsterdam Bike City thus becomes the cycling platform where we multiply knowledge and drive innovations together!
