A small Iranian delegation visited the Netherlands from 20 till 24 March for Bicycle introduction program organised by Sustainable Solutions as part of the Netherlands Bicycle Partnership (NBP). The group visited Nijmegen and tried the bicycle highway between Arnhem and Nijmegen. In Antwerp they learned about the very well functioning Velo Bike sharing system. After a introduction on this by Sven Huysman of The new Drive a meeting took place with the political responsible Alderman Mr. Koen Kennis to get a understanding of the broader mobility policy of the city of Antwerp. In the Hague the bicycle policy was introduced by policy maker Mr. Hidde van der Bijl on behalf of the Municipaly. An interesting but colt cycling tour through the city is been made.
‘This experience is very useful for the introduction of cycling in the Iranian city’s’ as mentioned by Mr. Kheradmen of the Municipality of Tehran.
