Soon you’ll be able to cycle from the Netherlands to Germany (if that’s your thing)
Municipalities, educational institutions and entrepreneurs in Germany are interested in Groningen’s cycling expertise. Our eastern neighbors are looking with interest at our cycle junction network, bike routes, bicycle facilities at public transport hubs; and the cities’ experiences with cargo bikes. For the European project “Bike no Borders”, the Province of Groningen organized a series of workshops with German municipalities, educational institutions and entrepreneurs to share Groningen’s experiences.
German organizations have a great need for good examples in the field of the biking, whilst we in Groningen are interested in knowledge in the field of ICT, such as smart route apps, reports OOGTV.
It has been agreed to connect the tourist cycle junction network on the Dutch side of the border to the German cycle paths on the other side of the border. A European subsidy has been awarded for this project. There will also be a sequel to the “Bike no Borders” project.
