Air polution, traffic congestion and obesity. Do you think they belong together?
…Yes, they all belong together and why? Because even more people live in urban areas where fresh air and space become rare and where people get less excited to move actively.

Smart Urban Biking
It’s not only crowded in metropolitan areas, even the mid-sized cities recognize and feel the problems that are just described here above. We think that Smart Urban Biking can contribute to increase the liveablility from our cities and the side-towns. How? By using our cycle-culture smarter. It’s the most common form of transportation in The Netherlands. According to the Fietsersbond (cyclists’ union), 13.5 million Dutch citizens own at least one bicycle. They are used for 34% of all travel up to 7.5 kilometres. On average, a Dutch citizen makes 300 cycling trips each year, covering 878 kilometres. Can you improve our way of cycling even further, using creative (network) technology and open data?
