Cycling in the winter
Cycling in the winter is not only enjoyable and healthy – it’s good for the environment too! Every time you cycle instead of driving, you contribute to a healthier environment because of the car emissions you save. Participate in the winter campaign and show us how you can withstand whatever the weather throws at you! By doing so, you can inspire others and stand a chance of winning great prizes.
The details of the campaign
We encourage everyone to keep cycling during the cold months. Each month, a special promo team will visit another municipality in South Limburg to promote cycling during the winter. During November, we will be in Maastricht. During December and January, we will be in Heerlen. During January and February, we will be in Sittard-Geleen.
How to take part
It's very simple: keep using your bicycle during the winter. Regardless of the weather, keep on pedalling – whether to work or to the supermarket. Every bike ride counts.
The benefits of cycling during winter
First of all, it gives you a good feeling in more ways than one – you are doing something positive, not only for your health but also for the environment. By not using your car, you prevent the CO2emissions your driving would have caused. In consultation with the three municipalities, we want to go even further! As such, we are currently in discussions with the Centrum voor Natuur- en Milieueducatie (centre for education on nature and the environment) to review the possibilities to plant extra trees, which would be another way of removing CO2 from the atmosphere.
The prizes you could win
By sharing your own cycling experiences, you can inspire others and win great prizes. Sign up via the website and upload your photo for a chance to win a Fitbit Alta (worth €150) or a Bever gift voucher.
Who can participate in the campaign
Everyone can participate by using their own bicycle or testing one of our e-bikes during a two-week trial period. We currently have 40 e-bikes available, including nine high-speed e-bikes! On the website you can see when the e-bikes and high-speed e-bikes are available in your municipality. Reserve one now, as only a limited number are available.
