Ride with Soci.bike to Berlin
Soci.bike cargo bike ride from Nijmegen to Berlin
From the European Green Capital 2018, Nijmegen, two cargo bikers will ride their soci.bike cargo bike to the ICBF2018 @ VELOBerlin at the former airport Tempelhof in Berlin.
In the several attempts Nijmegen did to become European Green Capital, the citizens of Nijmegen always went tot he finals by bike; to Copenhagen, to Bristol, to Ljubljana and to Essen.
As European Commissioner Karmenu Vella said in his opening speech in Nijmegen: “In the great Dutch tradition, cycling is at the heart of Nijmegen and the city is at the forefront of modern urban mobility. The centre of the cargo bike movement, developments in this area pioneered in Nijmegen, can change the way we view transport in our urban areas. (…)
The European Green Capital Award is not just a singular award for one city. It is a showcase of best practices to inspire other cities to build a more sustainable future.”
We will bring the cargo bike experience and the Green Capital values from Nijmegen to Berlin.
The start of the ride is at 10am at the the Dutch Bicycle Centre, Honigcomplex in Nijmegen.
If you want to participate in the ride as an individual, with your organisation or company, starting from Nijmegen, or from any other spot in Europe and by cargo bike, road bike, trekking bike, e-bike or any other bike, “hop on” to the route.
