U-Stal duo bike is an anniversary gift
The call of the bicycle mayor was picked up by U-Stal, the organization that manages the bicycle parking facilities in the city of Utrecht. In 2021 U-Stal existed 35 years, they wanted to celebrate this by giving the city of Utrecht a duo bike as a present. The bicycle can be reserved for a small amount per part of the day. The permanent location of the U-Stal duo bike is at the parking facility Laag Catharijne (Catharijnesingel 28).
In the coming period, the bicycle mayor wants to set up a department of Fietsmaatjes in Utrecht. Fietsmaatjes (in English bicycle mates) is a foundation that allows people who are no longer able to cycle independently, to make a bike tour together with a volunteer on a duo bike.
