Cycling in the Arnhem Nijmegen City Region

Within the province of Gelderland, the region Arnhem - Nijmegen is an easily accessible and bicycle friendly region.

Cycling in the Arnhem Nijmegen City Region

Keeping the region accessible is one of the priorities. In order to invite motorists to take up cycling, fast cycling routes are being constructed in the region. Also, two recognizable Dutch bike manufacturers are situated here: Gazelle en Vanhulsteijn. Besides, the region hosts several bike facilities, such as the bicycle museum Velorama and Bicycle Centre Nijmegen.

Fast cycling routes 

The region Arnhem - Nijmegen has several fast cycling routes. And new routes are added. Fast cycling routes connect residential, work and shopping areas in the different towns and cities. They are fast, direct, comfortable and safe routes over a longer distance. Cyclists are given as much priority as possible. By realizing fast cycling routes, the province of Gelderland wants to encourage commutes to cycle more frequently. 

Velo-city 2017

From June 13th to June 16th 2017, at least 1,500 delegates from over 80 countries across the globe will be welcomed to a region which is home to two of the most beautiful cities, just around the corner from Amsterdam and very close to the German border: the Region Arnhem-Nijmegen!

The main theme of Velo-city 2017 will be ‘The Freedom of Cycling’. Themes like Governance and Policy Development, Infrastructure, Social and Equity Aspects, Bikenomics and Urban Development will be the main topics of the Velo-city 2017 conference. But of course also the Dutch story and the relation with health and sustainability will get ample attention.
