Maastricht is working hard to make cycling more fun, easier, and safer. That’s great news, because cycling is good for you and it’s a great way to see the best side of the city. What’s more, if you cycle, then you are helping to make Maastricht better. Happy faces, clean air, and a city centre that is easily accessible. You can contribute to all this and more by cycling!
That’s what we mean when we say #posifiets!
Cycling in such a way that gives you enjoyment and is not a nuisance to others. That means putting your bike in a bike rack to keep the pavement clear. It also means cycling while staying alert to your surroundings, rather than focusing on your phone as you cycle. All those examples are #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
