Leading Cycling Nation Continues to Invest in Biking Infrastructure

THE HAGUE – the Netherlands - After months of negotiating, the new Dutch government agreed to invest 2 billion euros additionally into mobility. Five percent (100 million euro) of that allocated budget is reserved for cycling projects. It reflects that, despite the country being the number one in the world for cycling, it keeps spending money on getting more people on bikes more often. However, it’s said that the 100 million is not enough.
