Fietsmaatjes Nuenen kicks off
The Fietsmaatjes Nuenen project started in April 2021. Due to corona it had been postponed for a year, but it could finally take place on April 2, partly due to the placement of protection screens on the side by side electric bikes. At the local fire station, two guests and two volunteers cycled on two side by side bikes during the kick-off.
Jan Zwaan, the chairman of Fietsmaatjes Nuenen, opened the meeting and told more about Fietsmaatjes and what Fietsmaatjes can mean for Nuenen. Fietsmaatjes Nuenen was founded in a short time, with a board, 50 volunteers, 15 guests and two side by side electric bikes. During the meeting, City Counsel Member Ralf Stultiëns told more about the social importance of the Fietsmaatjes and the enthusiastic municipality of Nuenen (source: Rond de Linde).
