Cyclists enjoy more! Take your bicycle and ride into the centre of Maastricht in winter. Then you will be treated to beautiful Christmas lights, atmospheric shop windows and special offers from local entrepreneurs. They treat you because you leave your car at home. That is good for you and you also help to improve the clean air and accessibility of the city. All truly #posifiets!
Cycling in a way that makes you happy and doesn't inconvenience anyone else. So also: park in a bike rack, so that the pavement remains free. And cycling with your head in the wind instead of your phone. All #posifiets.
Maastricht is making it even easier to be #posifiets! For example, more and more bicycle-parking facilities are cropping up all over the city. In Wyck, car parking spaces have even made way for them. Thanks to developments like this, #posifiets is increasingly becoming the norm and more and more people are leaving their cars at home. The campaign is an initiative of the Municipality of Maastricht and the Maastricht Bereikbaar urban programme.
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 message: get #posifiets! A healthy and safe way to get around, without inconveniencing others.
Maastricht loves cyclists and cyclists love Maastricht.
Every time you leave your car at home and use your bike, you help make the city a better place. #Posifiets
