The use of the bike is increasing globally. Access to bicycles and affordability of the bicycle as transportation contributes to this. The bicycle is also used as a means to contribute to a cleaner environment. In emerging cities it is good transportation for the poor and it helps the fight against obesity.
We are seeing a growing awareness of policy makers for the bicycle. In the USA there are plenty of examples and also closer to home like in London and Paris. The expectation is that this policy will increase in the coming years
Look at the e-bike revolution, the bike highways, smart bike innovations, but also for example, the access of bicycle data.
Connecting People and Cylcing
Bike Infra Show
The Bike Infra Show is an initiative of Dutch Bike Capital. Dutch Bike Capital was founded in 2015 to connect all the different initiatives around cycling.
We also saw no dedicated Infra Show for cycling. Therefore we took this upportunity to kick-off with the first Cycling Infra Show in the world. We also go further than just infrastructure. The connecting world and data also involves the cyclists and bicycles.
