🚲 Do you always feel safe on the bike? Or do you sometimes, just like other cyclists, experience unpleasant situations? Think of cycling in the dark, being called after or aggression between road users. These are all examples of Social Safety*. For the second ABC Bicycle Innovation Lab, we are looking for the most innovative solution for improving social safety while cycling. This makes cyclists feel safer on the road, making cycling even more fun!

⚠️ 'Social safety' is an important theme that deserves more attention. With this Bicycle Innovation Lab we want to improve the cycling experience in the Amsterdam region. You can help us! Do you have a good idea for improving the social safety in specific situations? Then take up the challenge and join our Bicycle Innovation Lab between February 15th and March 30th!

*𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘪𝘴 𝘚𝘰𝘤𝘪𝘢𝘭 𝘚𝘢𝘧𝘦𝘵𝘺? Social Safety refers to how safe someone feels in public in situations where there is potential danger from other peoples' actions. Examples of situations in which social safety can be at risk while cycling: aggression between cyclists, cycling home after sports in the dark, children cycling to school or tourists who are not familiar with Amsterdam and the social norms. In all these situations, the behavior of other people can make you feel unsafe on the bike.
