Also the Basques want to bike more and therefore, the newspaper El Diario Vasco organizes on the 26th, 27th and 29th of May BiciBizi in San Sebastian and the province of Gipuzcoa. Throughout the whole province, activities about cycling are organized and the opening event is a conference and debate on the 26th of May.
On behalf of the Dutch Cycling Embassy, Camila Pinzon will speak at BiciBizi about the Dutch cycling culture and why cycling is popular in a city like Amsterdam. She will tell something about the history of cycling and how to promote cycling in cities. Cycling is not only a chance for mobility in the city, but could give a boost to the local economy, add to the health of citizens and stimulate tourism. As an urban planning and urban design office our interest in cycling is also related to the opportunity that cycling offers to create more pleasant streets, healthy neighbourhoods and human cities.
The newspaper El Diario Vasco published an interview with Camila Pinzon in the week before the BiciBizi. Click here to read the article online.
