The Dutch Cycling Embassy is a public private network. The Embassy operates in the field of urban planning and mobility. It is an intermediary between the demand for Dutch inputs (expertise, products and services) and Dutch parties that can deliver. In 2014, we became a partner of the Dutch Cycling Embassy. The Embassy promotes cycling and cycling culture abroad. To encourage cycling, it takes more than a cycle path, it’s about culture, smart links, pleasant surroundings and a good mix of bottom-up initiatives and top-down policies. We are connected to advise from an urban perspective on cycling and urban planning. Click here for more information about the Dutch Cycling Embassy. We have advised and/or presented in several countries such as Panama, Costa Rica, Argentine and Colombia about how to stimulate cycling and how to make cycling beneficial for cities.
