City Central is organizing various in-person events in the following weeks. Learn more about the road rules with “FietsFriend,” tour Groningens’ beautiful countryside, or dive into its unique art world.
“Rules of the Road” workshop
The Dutch traffic can be challenging, especially for internationals. Therefore, City Central’s FietsFriends organized a workshop for everyone who wants to understand traffic law and signs.
Grab your bike and join FietsFriends volunteers on a short route through the city. They will bike by your side and teach you and other internationals how to navigate through Groningen’s busy streets pointing out traffic signs and road markings.
The workshop will take place on September 24, from 19:00 to 20:00, at the City Central shop (Akerkhof 2A). The workshop will cost 2.50 euros per person. Just bring your bike, and you’re ready to go!
