Initiative of G-Sport Vlaanderen

The project to rent a special needs bike in Belgium was created and implemented by G-Sport Vlaanderen (G-sport Vlaanderen vzw is the platform to support and promote G-sports in Flanders. In Flanders, they also call sport for people with a disability G-sport). Nele Slabbink of G-Sport Vlaanderen tells HLN about the project: "There is a great demand for special needs bikes from both individuals and organisations. Buying a bicycle yourself is often too expensive and research shows that the rental offer is still too limited. Moreover, there is no good overview of rental locations." In July 2021, there were already 120 rental points and a thousand bicycles for rent/loan throughout Flanders.
