The central theme of the Bicycle Innovation Lab 2023

For the second Amsterdam Bike City Bicycle Innovation Lab, we asked for innovative solutions that improve social safety for cyclists. Because no matter how fun and healthy cycling is, it is not always experienced as pleasant. Think of cycling in the dark, being called after, or aggression between road users. With the theme of 'social safety' we want to improve the cycling experience in the region. Read the entries below and vote! Do you want to know more about the Bicycle Innovation Lab?

Place cyclists in the ‘green’ spotlight!

We suggest an experiment to give cyclists at traffic lights maximum ‘green time’ and cars minimum ‘green time’. Car routes that currently get 60-80 seconds of green light, will get only 40 seconds of green light in our experiment. Bicycle routes will get till 20 seconds of green light. Waiting time for cyclists is then diminished with almost fifty percent per traffic light. Count your winnings!

Because of the great impact of the experiment on car traffic, we will only change the waiting time once or twice a year. For example, on the first day after summer holidays when schools start. We will not experiment around crowdy car traffic routes or near highways. We hope that our experiment will contribute to:

  • a change in behavior for both parents with kids that go to school, and for the motorists/car drivers who must wait at this day for the cyclists.
  • a change in the Amsterdam traffic system in the long run. Cars will no longer be central at intersections, but cyclists will be.

Show where you want to go, turn signal on the bike.

Showing where you want to go by bike can be a real challenge. Extending your hand on the bike is not easy when the wind almost blows you over. I also prefer to keep my hands on the wheel while turning the corner. And you can give someone else an unintentional slap if you want to indicate your direction with your hand. At a roundabout a driver does not see your arm while it is hidden behind your body as a cyclist. And in the dark that outstretched arm is not visible at all.

In short: dangerous situations everywhere, especially with the modern fast bikes!!!

Solution: a turn signal on the bike. A harness with reflective straps with front and rear lights, left and right, in yellow and red colours. Put it on over your head, and you’re ready to go. With a push on a button the lights turn on and show which way you want to go.

“Do you want to turn the corner safely? Than show in which direction you want to go as a cyclist!”

Bike Your Way

This app is intended to help people navigate safely through Amsterdam. Unique about the app is:

  • It indicates where it is busy with cyclists.
  • It indicates closed roads.
  • If you prefer not to cycle alone, it will find a buddy to cycle with for you.
  • Places of interest are indicated.
  • When using the app, good behavior on the bike and riding with a buddy is rewarded with points.

This app is suitable for everyone: young and old, and of course for tourists.

Save Cycle App.png

Cycle with confidence: Join the Safe Cycle Community today!

When I'm on my bike at night, I sometimes feel unsafe due to poor lighting on the cycle paths, dangerous driving behaviour of motorists or a lack of social control on the street. This is especially the case for female cyclists in the evening, but it also affects other cyclists.

That's why I came up with the solution: the “Safe Cycle” app! This innovative app offers interactive and personalized information about safe cycling routes and tips. In addition, the app creates a community of cyclists who can support and advise each other on safety and other aspects of cycling. The app also allows users to report unsafe situations that are then shared with other cyclists and local authorities.

My goal is to increase the confidence of cyclists in the safety of their environment, to create a positive cycling climate and to contribute to a sustainable and safe cycling environment in Amsterdam. I will actively promote the app to women in Amsterdam and work closely with local authorities and cycling organizations to ensure that the app remains up-to-date and user-friendly.

HOMIES (visual).png


HOMIES is a platform where cyclists can get in touch with other cyclists. With HOMIES you can use the app to request or create a bike ride. Based on departure time, direction, and destination, the app facilitates cycling together (toward home). This makes HOMIES the most social cycling association in the Amsterdam night. The HOMIE that created the bike ride saves points with each ride/distance. These can be redeemed in the HOMIES shop for gift cards/discounts. In the beginning, we mainly focus on target groups that experience subjective insecurity in the evening and night. In the future, the platform can also be extended to other target groups (cycling together to school, the sports club, etc.). With your HOMIES you can arrive home!

Welcome in Amsterdam, we have bikes and rules.png

Welcome in Amsterdam, we have bikes and rules

The municipality of Amsterdam has to deal with an increasing number of tourists in the city, which causes 'growing pains' such as crowds and difficulties for residents. Amsterdam is a bicycle-friendly city, but the lack of knowledge about the traffic rules among tourists makes cycling in the city dangerous for both residents and tourists.

A solution to this problem is to place video animations in which the traffic rules in Amsterdam are explained in a simple and understandable way. These videos can be posted at strategic locations where tourists enter the city, such as the baggage belts at Schiphol and the screens at the train and metro stations. In this way, tourists can easily take note of the traffic rules and safety on the cycle paths can be improved.

Amsterdam is becoming increasingly bicycle-friendly, and that is a good development, but it is also crucial that tourists are also aware of the traffic rules to prevent dangerous situations. By distributing these video animations, the municipality of Amsterdam can improve the safety of all road users and contribute to a better and safer living environment for both residents and tourists.

9 types of cyclists.png

Workshop 'The 9 types of Cyclists: The safer way to be a cyclist'

My solution for improving social safety for cyclists is to make a number of workshops, talks, conferences, and retreats about our human beings, and our inner transformation, It's necessary to go into ourselves to make people feel safer during cycling. And what could it be safer than knowing me first? How I will be reacting to some situations, in order to know how I see the world with a tool that has been with us for 30 centuries.

This ancient tool helps people to see with clarity the ways they may act and react. The Enneagram is a system for finding out the type of personality we had. You can measure a person's motivation, not their behavior. There are 9 types that represent strategies for relating to themself, with others, and with the world. Also, the different types of patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting.

The outcomes for the safety of the bike lanes will be mirrored in understanding their own motivations, their fears, and strengths. Finally, the Cyclists will gain confidence, communication skills, and new ways of trust in the community.

Straight ahead on the same road continues safely

Problem: At many traffic lights in Amsterdam, the traffic lights for cyclists to go straight ahead turn green at the same time as traffic lights for cars that go straight ahead and turn right. And unfortunately, that often goes wrong, seriously wrong, with too many fatalities.

Solution: We reprogram the traffic lights in a different way:

  1. Cyclists have green light; all car traffic lights at the same intersection RED LIGHT. Because we know that cyclists pay attention to each other, we can also give all cyclists e.g. orange light at the same time to save time. Just like on IJplein at GVB ferries behind central station: all bicycle traffic (possibly with pedestrians) pays attention to each other. Campaigning for this is simple and quick to make effective. Rotterdam already has examples.
  2. Green for cars straight ahead and right, then all cyclists have RED LIGHT. Advantage: better flow for cars because right-turning traffic now often has to wait for cyclists that will go straight ahead, and with that they also block cars that just want to go straight. This often leads to irritation among drivers, causing right-turning cars to be rushed and ignoring cyclists. An additional advantage is that trucks know that there will be no cyclists in their blind spot (unless they run a red light, but that is your own fault).

The Tunnel Visionary: From a dirty tunnel, to tunnels with vision!

The memory of your bike ride is only as strong as the least pleasant experience during that bike ride. Tunnels in Amsterdam are perceived as socially unsafe and thus ensure that many bicycle rides through Amsterdam remain an unpleasant memory. The program 'The Tunnel Visionary' tackles five unpleasant tunnels chosen by Amsterdam inhabitants with various temporary measures, each of which focuses on a different sense.

During the period that the measures are present, we can monitor which measures have the strongest positive effect on the experiences in the tunnel. The tunnel that shows the most positive effect will be permanently redesigned! The approach for this tunnel is done in such a way that it can be applied to all tunnels in Amsterdam. In this way, cycling through a scary tunnel in Amsterdam will be a thing of the past!

Distance at green lights, Accomplishing it together!

At many bicycle intersections, a cross is now often used to indicate that you should not stand still there. That's a big improvement. But it would be even better if people also stop in front of the cross if they have a red light. In that situation, other crossing cyclists who have green light can continue to ride. Then they do not have to brake for cyclists from the right who will cycle slowly toward the red traffic light. It ensures that there is less crowding at the traffic lights because there is room left for others.

Additional idea: remove the poles that cyclists can press. This is of no use and it does require maintenance. By removing it, cyclists will no longer think that they have to press the button and press it as soon as possible.

Where are all those cyclists heading to?

This intervention offers a solution to (social) unsafety on the bike paths in Amsterdam. By (social) unsafety, we mean accidents, irritation, aggression, and the fact that people show little consideration for each other and are mainly concerned with themselves.

Through three physical signs on a fixed bike route, people are challenged to step out of their internal bubble and seek more contact with other bike path users. The ultimate goal is for people to start a short conversation with each other when they have to wait a moment for other traffic, such as at a traffic light. Combined with posters distributed throughout the city with the same message, people are enticed to seek more contact with each other. Through this contract, anonymity is reduced, people will be more considerate of each other, and there will be less irritation or aggression, which will improve (social) insecurity on the busy bike paths.

Don’t be a cycling-savage, but be kind to one another

E-bikes are not leaving the street scene. And other forms of fast cyclists, such as road bikes, are now widely part of the city as well. But currently, they often provoke aggression among "regular" cyclists. That's why I advocate for greater understanding of each other. This is by placing a positive traffic sign calling for consideration and giving each other space.

Zebra crossing on the cycle path? We're sick of it

Pedestrians hardly get the right of way from cyclists in Amsterdam at a crosswalk. It is also easier for pedestrians to hold back for a moment. Therefore, I advocate the removal of pedestrian crossings on bike paths when pedestrians have enough space to wait a moment.

I’m learning while having fun

Is cycling just about balancing and pedaling? ‘The rule connects you to life, pedal with confidence on life.’ With our project "I’m learning while having fun," we can choose one of Amsterdam's parks as a pilot and create a mini-bike practice area. This area will contain rules and events that children may encounter in traffic.

That’s my Badge!

The cycle paths bring together a wide range of people and circumstances: tourists and Amsterdammers, young and old, some in a hurry and others on a bike ride, in broad daylight or the dark of night.

Our cycling behaviour and knowledge of the city and its social norms can make other people feel unsafe on a bicycle. In the same way, other people's cycling behaviour and knowledge of the city and its social norms can make us feel unsafe on a bicycle.

Let’s make it easier, kinder, and safer.

With the Badge, in 3 colours, we can freely recognise ourselves within 3 different ways of cycling and its needs.

A simple approach to tell others how much space around us we need to feel comfortable, how agile we are when cycling, and how much we know about Amsterdam's cycle paths and its social norms.

An innovative solution that improves communication between cyclists to anticipate potential safety risks while making cycling more inclusive, fun, and enjoyable for everyone.

Hidden gem of bike safety

Summary of the problem: Based on statistics, almost three quarters of the cyclist fatalities and over half the seriously injured cyclists are aged 60 or over. Among reasons of accidents there are: high speed, loosing attention, road conditions, various distractions, turn without looking, running a red light or stop sign. Important to note, that only 18% of cyclists wear helmets, but based on personal experience almost no one in Amsterdam does. Although helmet is proven to be a very good safety measure in case of accident.

Summary of the solution: to run strong advertisement campaign to promote wearing of helmets, with the emphasis on inflatable helmet and elderly audience.

Accessible cycling routes for recreation

Amsterdam is a bike-friendly city, but improvements are still needed to make cycling safer and more accessible for recreational cyclists. We propose to build bicycle bridges and tunnels at the intersections of Zuiderzeeweg/Ijburglaan and Burgemeester De Vlugtlaan/Haarlemmerweg to improve the cycling experience. This will not only increase safety, but also make the city more accessible to touring cyclists and families who want to spend a day outside the city.

Open the door without wrecking a cyclist

Nowadays, the old-fashioned cyclist has a lot to endure in daily Amsterdam life. Inattentive tourists, fast-moving electric bicycles and narrow streets with traffic on the road occasionally make cycling in Amsterdam a true adventure. But an underexposed phenomenon in Amsterdam's streets is the danger of spontaneously opening car doors, resulting in scare and injury. For example, doors are involved in 25% (!) of bicycle injuries in traffic.

Therefore, in the context of improving the social safety of cyclists in our beautiful city, we want to launch a campaign that aims to positively influence the behaviour of motorists with increasing awareness about their behaviour. This campaign will reach a target group of car owners through our catchy slogan and shaking images via multimedia channels. These will be fixed images, short animations and stickers. The stickers are meant to stick to the inside of car doors with the message that when you get out on the left, you open the door with the right – the Dutch Reach. This way of getting off requires the motorist to first look over their shoulder before opening their doors. We will share this message in relevant magazines and on social media through advertisements and channels of the municipality.

AMSPedalPro: The Smart Cycling Solution for Amsterdam's Congestion Problem

With more than 880,000 bicycles in the city, Amsterdam is renowned for its riding culture, yet congestion has become a major issue. AMSPedalPro is a smart cycling system that optimizes riding routes and lessens traffic using data and technology. AMSPedalPro strives to make cycling more effective, safe, and fun for everyone in Amsterdam by offering real-time information on traffic conditions, route suggestions, and safety tips.

A bicycle experience simulation for tourists at Schiphol

Prepare tourists at Schiphol for the streets of Amsterdam with simulations. Animations of bicycles are projected from the ceiling and with an app anyone can play and learn how to best move around. Players get points for avoiding collisions and the next level is controlling a bicycle.

To prepare tourists for walking around in Amsterdam they should be offered a simulation to learn the bicyclist’s logic. For example at Schiphol Airport. The video projections of bicycles and crossings on the floor react with a bicyclists logic to pedestrians. The projected bicycles do not react to those who do not participate in the game.

With enough points the player can take control of a bicycle and drive it around the crowd using their smartphone or tablet from a distance.

The polite bell

Cycling in busy cities such as Amsterdam can be dangerous for cyclists, even when they are using bike lanes or pedestrianised streets. There is the risk of other cyclists and pedestrians moving into the path of a cyclist, and causing a collision. A bell may alert others of oncoming traffic, but ringing your bell can sometimes be perceived as aggressive and scare others. Shouting has the same disadvantages, and not everyone can understand it. The solution is The Polite Bell, a bicycle bell that combines a traditional ringing bell with a spoken message, such as “Excuse me!” that can be heard from 25 metres away. The Polite Bell can be used to alert other road users of the cyclists’ presence without alarming them, and can be set to quieter or louder, for cycling on shared paths. The Polite Bell thus helps the safe mixing of cycling and pedestrian traffic on shared routes.

Safe home - sticker to make people feel safer in the city

People often feel unsafe when cycling late at night. This could be because there are people harassing them or because someone is, or seems to be, following them. Asking for help is difficult. After all, they do not want to wake someone up late at night. The result is that some people are starting to avoid cycling at night or in certain areas. Which means they must leave early when they go to a party or take a longer route home. There are luckily a lot of people who want to help others. The problem however is that they are less visible at night when everyone is sleeping. The solution is a sticker. This sticker can be put next to the doorbell of anyone who is ready to help others in a threatening situation. By putting up the sticker, the owner says: You are always welcome to ring the doorbell in case of a threatening situation and when you are scared. Even if it is late at night. Seeing a street with many stickers will make you feel safe, knowing there are people to help in case of emergency. To make them extra visible, the stickers glow in the dark.

One-way Tile against ghost riding on bicycle roads

One of the biggest aggravations in traffic is cyclists riding on the wrong side of the road, either to cut a corner or to jump the que at the traffic light. Not only is this annoying behaviour, but it is also dangerous. Waiting on the wrong side of the road means that oncoming cyclists have less room to enter the cycling path and need to make manoeuvres to avoid collision. Cutting corners and riding against traffic causes unsafe situations for obvious reasons. Especially the unpredictability of this behaviour makes it difficult to anticipate the situation for other road users.

The solution is the ‘One-way Tile’. This is a discouragement-device for cyclists, and scooter riders who decide to ride on the wrong side of the road. The tiles are directional. When riding over the tiles in the right direction, the cyclist will only feel a few small ridges. When riding over the tiles in the wrong direction, the cyclist will encounter annoying bumps which are uncomfortable to ride on. This will encourage people to stay on the right side of the road. The tiles can be placed in areas where cyclists and other bicycle path users often go against traffic.

Slow down top layer

The problem:
Crossing the junction on high speed. The cyclist may not watch carefully for others who are coming from different directions. The differences in speed creates unsafe and aggression between cyclists.

The solution:

  1. A colored top layer on a cycle path near a junction with 2 functions:
    Warning function: Approaching a junction
  2. Speed-reduction function: Slow down the bike with the use of different types of asphalt.

The top layer is rougher which slows down the cyclist but also prevent slippery surface when the road is wet.

The inspiration came from the French F1 track Paul Ricard where the different layers are applied on the sides of the track to reduce speed when the race cars lost the track.

The social safety is enhanced by the warning for users to slow down and to warn them for cyclists from all directions.

Amsterdam Cycling Etiquettes

Many tourists come to Amsterdam throughout the year. They often come from abroad and want to visit many sights in Amsterdam in a short period of time. Some of these tourists rent a bicycle, because it allows you to move quickly from A to B. Due to the unfamiliar and busy environment, accidents regularly occur. These accidents are often the result of ignorance of traffic rules and traffic situations. This can be prevented by educating tourists about the traffic rules and cycling behavior before they start cycling. A booklet is used for this that tells you what you should and should not do in Amsterdam traffic. The booklet consists mainly of images. This shows how you should not act and what you should do. This is indicated in the images with red and green circles. And there is a red cross or a green check mark. As an explanation, there is a short description in English of what the consequences can be of acting incorrectly. This booklet is physically available at tourist information points. And it is possible to scan a QR code when you rent a bike.

Protect your ride with HELMETA

HELMETA is an innovative helmet design that addresses three crucial safety concerns for riders, other road uses (pedestrians, and cyclists) while protecting the bicycle.

The helmet's primary function is to ensure the wearer's safety, and it accomplishes this by providing optimal protection to the head, including the forehead, temples, and the back of the head, which are the most vulnerable areas during an impact.

HELMETA also features an LED light system that enhances the wearer's visibility to other road users, especially during low-light conditions, increasing overall road safety.

Additionally, HELMETA is designed to protect the bicycle. It can transform into a bike locker, reducing the risk of damage and theft. Furthermore, HELMETA has a georeference sensor that detects when the helmet is locked with the bike, making it easy to locate the helmet.

In summary, HELMETA provides a comprehensive solution to safety concerns for riders, other road users, and the bicycle. Its advanced features make it an ideal choice for anyone looking for maximum protection and security while cycling.

CAVs Guardian

“Enabling cyclists and other vulnerable road users to be detected, even when not visible.”

Our platform has been developed to protect vulnerable road users from commercial or partially sighted vehicles although is transferrable to all vehicles. Close passes, busy junctions, and intersections, merging of slow-moving traffic are all danger zones for VRUs (Vulnerable Road Users). Vehicle operators and VRUs do not take the same approach or think with the same rationale and therefore sharing the same space is ultimately going to make collisions more likely. Cycle superhighways are a current trend, however in many cases they just move the congestion points and location where accidents happen. They are also expensive to implement and maintain for municipalities with budgets constant pressure. The number of deaths and serious injuries is rising and competition for road space is increasing at a high rate. Our solution allows cyclists to take back control of their own safety, to be seen, drivers to be able to see them, but importantly to allow cyclists and drivers to safely coexist.

WeRide Safely

Amsterdam cyclists face significant obstacles on their daily commutes, such as inadequate infrastructure, unsafe road conditions and unsafe parking. Moreover, Amsterdam cyclists can’t actively participate in the top-down decision-making processes implemented by the city administration. To counteract these issues, we introduce the mobile application - WeRide Today. It empowers daily commuters to share feedback with their city and to use up-to-date information on available routes, weather conditions and potential hazards on the streets while being incentivized to cycle more often.

WeRide Today aims to raise awareness for urban commuting by fostering a sense of community and citizenship. Through the application, users can connect with one another, local bike-friendly businesses and authorities while offering suggestions for improvements on their route for a better cycling experience. By fostering authentic, up-to-date city information, the app can become a go-to space to discover the most inclusive and safe routes in your city.

The product also provides users with useful information on the benefits of cycling, such as improved health, money and CO2 saved, and environmental impact from the ride. With these capabilities in mind, we aim to empower both experienced and inexperienced cyclists to get the most out of their commute.

The Slow Bicycle Street

Streets in Amsterdam are getting busier and busier! To keep our city accessible for bicycles, the municipality constructs bicycle streets where the bicycle has priority, and the car is a guest. However, we notice that some bicycle streets are laid out as 'fast' bicycle streets, with the result that cars can still overtake cyclists dangerously and some car drivers drive too close to cyclists. Ultimately, this causes cyclists to feel unsafe in traffic.

Therefore, we would like to propose working with "slow" bicycle streets, where all traffic participants can enjoy the environment thanks to the strong presence of special spatial elements. The Plantage Middenlaan along Artis is a good place to test this concept, because relatively few cars drive here and there are spatial qualities and opportunities. Together with people from the Plantage neighborhood and an artist, within six months, we want to place street art of zoo animals on the road surface that can take the 'speed' out of the street. In the long term (about five years) this street could be redesigned, with the streetcar lane and parking spaces greened, sidewalks widened, and it is abundantly clear that cyclists have priority here and the car is a guest.

Turn it! Shift it!

Amsterdam is essentially a safe city. But cycling is sometimes perceived as unpleasant. In particular, poorly lit bike paths and roads give many cyclists an oppressive or unsafe feeling at night.

There are simple (and inexpensive) ways to improve this situation. Not by introducing more light (that would not be very sustainable), but by distributing the existing amount of light differently - more fairly, more efficiently, and better.

Not more light - Better distributed light!

With practical measures, the lighting of the vast majority of bicycle paths can be drastically improved. More pleasant cycling for everyone who still goes out at dusk and dark.

Quick and simple measures - Big impact

The measures in a nutshell:

  • Turn the lighting aimed at the (car) lane by 180°.
  • For lamp posts with two lights (one facing the roadway, one facing the bike lane): turn the two lights around (swap them).
  • For lights hanging from cables above the road: shift the lights 3 meters outward so that they hang directly above the bike path or bike lane.
  • Turn priority when maintaining lamp posts: lights facing bicycle or pedestrian paths are repaired first (always within 24 hours).

Upgrade current rental bicycles in Amsterdam

Current Rental cycles in Amsterdam missing some basic facilities like Hand breaks (M of them are using a back pedal brakes system now), Mobile holders for Navigation and some identification stickers exclusively for touring cyclists. Most tourists are unfamiliar with the back pedal braking system and this causes accidents for both cyclists and road users. So instead of a back-pedal braking system, Update rental cycles in Amsterdam with normal hand brakes. These will eliminate unnecessary confusion among tourist cyclists and increase safety and fun while riding.

Upgrading rental cycles with mobile holders for navigation can help tourists to ride safely and efficiently. The lack of mobile holders in rental cycles makes tourists use one hand to hold the mobile while riding and it can put them in danger. So if the cycle has a mobile holder, then tourists can concentrate more on their riding.

Giving an exclusive number plate to the rental cycles can differentiate them from the local cyclists and this number plate gives awareness to other vehicle drivers and local cyclists. So they can take extra care when some rental cycles are around them
