Bicycle-friendly Maastricht: share your thoughts

On the evening of Wednesday 19 February, 16 residents gathered in the cellars of Thiessen Wijnkoopers for an informal meeting, organized by Maastricht Bereikbaar, to have a proper conversation about cycling to and in the city and share their experiences. Maastricht Bereikbaar’s urban approach is one of the projects of the Zuid-Limburg Bereikbaar programme office.

Besides dangerous traffic situations, illogical routes, and cobblestones, the participants mentioned things that Maastricht has got right, such as the underground parking facility at the station and the bicycle boulevard on Victor de Stuersstraat.

Cycling action plan in the pipeline

The evening was part of a journey the Municipality of Maastricht is undertaking. At the end of this journey, it wants to have produced a good cycling action plan that describes the steps over the coming years that will further improve life for cyclists in the city. The evening meeting was one of the last in a series in which other target groups were asked about their experience of cycling in Maastricht.
