This summer, there’s so much going on for you to enjoy. Maastricht invites you to join in a thrilling summer packed with events, concerts, food festivals, markets, fairs, and much more. And here’s where #posifiets comes in! With your bike, you can get where you need to be quickly and easily... and parking is a breeze! Plus, you’re keeping air clean, the city centre accessible, and you can enjoy the streets, squares, and parks without the stress of the car.
It’s summer in Maastricht, and that means it’s the season of cycling. Whether you live here or are just visiting, all the cycle paths in and around the city will leave you spoiled for choice. As soon as you come into the city centre, you’ll see how relaxed it is getting around without a car. Staying longer in town? Park your bike at the Vrijthof, Markt, Kesselskade, or below the station (first 24 hours free). And you’ll feel like you’ve earned that first drink on one of the café terraces. Popping in to do some shopping? There are dozens of places to lock or store your bike around town. Just follow the green signs!
#Posifiets is about cycling in a way that makes you feel good and respects others. So, that means keeping off the pavements and being alert of your surroundings, rather than looking at your phone as you pedal along. And when the shops are open, remember to dismount and walk your bike through the centre. Little things that mean the whole of Maastricht can enjoy the summer of cycling.
Once you’ve got the hang of it, you won’t want to travel around the city in any other way – and you’ll be #posifiets too! Just grab your bike, share the road, and spread the word: let’s get #posifiets! It’s good for you, and it’s good for the city!
