New Van Raam bicycles delivered to Park Hoge Veluwe
Perhaps the Hoge Veluwe National Park is best known for its iconic white bicycles, with which visitors can explore the park on its designated cycle paths. To give as many people as possible the chance to admire the beautiful nature of the Hoge Veluwe, the National Park also rents out Van Raam adapted bicycles for people who cannot cycle on a two-wheeled bicycle. Because of the high demand, extra adapted bicycles were needed at the park and in May 2020 the Van Raam bicycles could be delivered. Read more about this in this article.
Van Raam delivered adapted bicycles
The green treasury of the Netherlands. This is one of the most famous National Parks in the Netherlands: The Hoge Veluwe. The park of 5,400 hectares can be explored by car, walking and the most famous way is perhaps by bicycle. The park has 1800 white bicycles that are made available to visitors free of charge. But not every visitor can cycle on a two-wheeled bicycle, for example, due to a disability. The park has also thought about these visitors.
Because the Park wants to offer a special nature experience to as many people as possible, there are various types of Van Raam adapted bicycles that can be rented free of charge to visitors who cannot cycle on a two-wheeled bicycle. Because the adapted bikesare used so much at Park Hoge Veluwe, new bicycles were needed. That is why Van Raam delivered new bicycles to the park at the end of May 2020. Marnix Kwant, Marketing & Sales Manager at Van Raam, was allowed to deliver three new adapted bicycles to the National Park, namely two OPair wheelchair bikes and one VeloPlus wheelchair transport bike.
As can be seen in the pictures below, the visitors and employees of the park are very happy to receive the bicycles:
