Cycling in The Netherlands – Study Tour 3

15 November 2019 10:30 till 13:00 - Location: TU DELFT CAMPUS

After attending the interactive lecture you can sign up for a study tour where participants have a chance to test their skills riding a bicycle. This tour aims to compliment the lecture by navigating a range of different junctions and common road situations. At different points the group will dismount and discuss road signage, junctions and different rules in certain situations. In addition, the route will guide participants through Delft and show off its sights. In this way participants experience that they can use their bicycle to discover Delft in an easy and convenient way. We will make sure that the route is customized to the participants needs.

Before we depart for the study tour the tour guides will start with a ‘check’ to make sure that all participants are capable of joining the tour. This will take place at the campus away from traffic to ensure people can start their practice confidently in a safe space. In case that someone is not capable of cycling safely we will advise the participant to not join the study tour due to safety reasons. 

The ‘check’ will consist of the following:

  • Participants bicycles will be checked on being the right size, if the tires are pumped up and if it is in good working conditions. We will have tools on hand to adjust the height of bike seats if and pump up the tires if required;
  • To make sure people are safe when cycling in Delft we will check cornering, steering and breaking abilities;
  • Additionally, we will check if the participants are able to cycle with one hand, this guarantees they can indicate when turning corners.
