Maastricht nominated for “Fietsstad 2016” title
During the Bikenomics symposium in Utrecht on 13 October, the Fietsersbond (The Dutch Cycling Union) announced that Maastricht, along with Nijmegen, Goes, Utrecht and Groningen are all nominated for the title of “Fietsstad 2016” (Cycle City 2016).
Maastricht Council and Maastricht Bereikbaar are tackling their catch-up efforts for bicycle use in the city and surrounding regions. Next year an expert panel of judges will decide whether the policies of the nominated cities can work in practice. The winners will be announced in May 2016.
