Day five of the trade mission Colombia 2018
On Saturday, BiciGo opened to consumers, with high attendance of the academic program.
Wieland Hendriksen from the Urban Future gave a presentation about their service CyclePRINT, the visualisation the analysis of cycling in cities.
We from the Dutch Cycling Embassy gave the BiciGo visitors an idea of why we cycle in the Netherlands, our history with cycling and our experiences with car-centric cities in the Netherlands.
We also spoke about the current developments like the E-bike and the cargo bike. After our bike ride on Wednesday, we got a sense of the promising cycling culture and infrastructure in Bogotá, and discussed current challenges the city faces. The audience was very interested in knowing how the transition went from being a car-centric country to the cycle-friendly place it is today.
The BiciGo day ended with an energetic performance of live music at our Holland Lounge, viewed by both the cycle team as a large audience of BiciGo visitors. A great ending to a productive day 5 at the BiciGo fair!
