FietsFriend Festival in Groningen

Connect International Event in Groningen

Date: Saturday 3 June 2023 at 10:15 hrs

Location: Spaak (Oude Boteringestraat 66) and Ossenmarkt

Event Registration closes at: 2023-06-02 10:00


3 June is World Cycling Day! And Groningen is the cycling capital of the Netherlands – but understanding the rules of the road can be intimidating. 

If you:


- need to learn more about Dutch cycling traffic rules

- want to explore the city by bike

- need to learn how to cycle

- want to help teach people how to cycle

Then come to the FietsFriend Festival! 

This fun day all about biking has a mix and match programme, so you can choose what you want to do!



10:15 to 11:15: at Spaak: cycling presentation and bike vocabulary at Spaak

11:30 to 14:00: At the Ossenmarkt: ongoing 1-on-1 lessons

11:30 – 12:00: Rules of the Road 

12:00 – 12:30: break (lunch will not be provided, so please bring food for yourself!)

12:30 – 14:00: Rules of the Road


Please bring your own bike! We will have a few extra bikes on hand for beginners, but for Rules of the Road, you’ll need to have your own wheels. 

You will receive a free cycling handbook and a bike keychain. We’ll also have some beverages – coffee and tea – to keep you warm.

If you need to learn how to cycle, you are welcome to bring a friend if you need some extra support (or even translation help).
