What is your contribution to cycling in Drenthe?
I am chairman of the Drenthe Fiets4Daagse. This organisation organised the Fiets4Daagse for the 52nd time this year. For 4 days, routes of 40, 60 and 80 km and children’s routes of 25 km will be organised from 7 starting points and mountain bike routes of 25 and 50 km will be organised from 1 starting point. A total of about 10000 people will cycle every day.
Along these routes, we show Drenthe in all its variety: nature, landscape, villages, culture and the like. The routes will also include other experiences, such as visiting a farm, but also a sculpture garden or a mill to name but a few.
Why is the UCI Bike Region Label good for Drenthe?
We believe that the promotion of Drenthe as a cycling province has been important for more than 50 years. We would like to help further promote Drenthe as a cycling province. This is economically important for Drenthe. Because we organise a multi-day event, many participants stay in hotels, campsites or holiday parks.
We send a newsletter with information on the label and the showcases (In Dutch) four times a year. Sign up for the newsletter and don’t miss out on the developments and stay informed about the activities and events.
