Start a Fietsmaatjes location in your area


Who would you like to volunteer with? Dedicate yourself together with a friend or your partner to the people in your neighborhood, village or city. How nice is that? The Fietsmaatjes Nederland Foundation aims to ensure that everyone in the Netherlands who can no longer cycle can go on bike rides with a buddy on an electrically assisted duo bike. This is already possible in 50 municipalities throughout the Netherlands, and we hope that this will grow to at least 60 municipalities within 2 years. The first step? Come to our online meeting alone or together! The next information meeting is scheduled online on Wednesday, May 15 at 7:30 PM. Subject: how to start your own Fietsmaatjes location. We tell you who we are, how Fietsmaatjes works and how you can (together) set up your own organization. We also share tips for finding other enthusiasts in your municipality. Of course there is also an opportunity for questions. You can register via our website or send an email to info@ (our name in the logo)
