As you may have noticed, the Netherlands is a cycling country. It has more bikes than people. Delft is no exception. It is likely your bike will become a part of your life while you are living here. The country’s infrastructure and historical cycling culture make the bike an easy, quick and cheap way to get around the city; plus, you’ll be doing something quintessentially ‘Dutch’. What better way to get to know your adopted city than from behind the handlebars?
In this PDF you will find lots of information aiming to provide you with some basic tips about owning a bike: selecting the right one, locking it safely, making repairs, obtaining insurance against accidents and learning about the proper traffic rules and cycling behaviour that will help you cycle in a safe way. At the end you can test your knowledge with a little quiz! TU Delft also organises cycling workshops; check the events and workshops calendar for the next one.
