Utrecht, the fourth city of the Netherlands, has a historic city centre and is also a bicycle city. Utrecht has a passion for cycling, which is why it competed to be the start of the most famous bicycle race in the world.
This theme was picked by the Dutch Cyclists' Union to highlight the financial and other benefits of cycling.
Since 2004, cycling in the Netherlands has increased by 6,5%. The main reason is the growth of the population and the number of cyclists. The use of e-bikes means people are cycling longer distances.
