Why we cycle?
2017 | 57 min | Documentary | Directors Arne Gielen, Gertjan Hulster
To the Dutch, cycling is as normal as breathing. Perhaps the fact that they do not think about it, is the key to the bicycle’s success in the Netherlands. Since the Dutch do not give cycling a second thought, they do not really know what the deeper needs of cyclists are. In the documentary “Why we cycle,” we take a ride with ordinary cyclists and specialists from a variety of disciplines. These conversations uncover some obvious, but even more hidden effects of cycling on people, on societies, and on the organization of cities.

After the screening, everyone is welcomed to stay on for drinks and nibbles.

Biking to the event:
There is a Bike park behind the swimming pool which will be available to park and lock your bike.

Let’s get together to enjoy incredible Dutch film magic.
