In Utrecht (Netherlands) you can make use of a Fun2Go double share bike. The permanent location of the bike is the U-Stal bicycle shed at Laag Catharijne. The first duo bike was unveiled by, among others, Jelle Bakker, the bicycle mayor of Utrecht.

Fietsmaatjes Utrecht

The foundation Fietsmaatjes Utrecht (Bicycle Companions) was established in June 2023. Currently, they are actively fundraising to acquire tandem bicycles. The expectation is that in 2024, people will be able to ride tandem bicycles with Fietsmaatjes in Utrecht. For more information, please visit the Fietsmaatjes Utrecht website.

Festive inauguration U-Stal bike

On 30 June 2022 the first U-Stal duo bike was unveiled by bicycle mayor of Utrecht Jelle Bakker, alderman Rachel Streefland and Pieter Mosterd of U-Stal. The mayor and alderman Streefland made the first ride on the bicycle.

Plan for duo-bike by Utrecht bicycle mayor

Jelle Bakker, bicycle mayor of Utrecht, pleaded in an interview with RTV Utrecht for shared bicycles in Utrecht. He also mentioned that he found it strange that there was not yet a location for Fietsmaatjes in Utrecht.

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).

Fietsmaatjes Utrecht

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. Read more about Fietsmaatjes in the article 'Fietsmaatjes on side by side tandem'.
