On Monday March 5th, the Dutch Cycling Embassy met with the Mass Participation and Advocacy commission of the UCI.
The goal of the meeting was to explain how the DCE advocates, what kind of events the DCE organizes and how we can collaborate in the near future. The UCI is widely known as the licensing organization for road racing, but since the organization has a wide outreach, they can actually stimulate change amongst the general public through the use of the bike. The UCI Mass participation and Advocacy Commission is currently developing methods to make use of their influence to stimulate cycling as a mode of transport. DCE had offered some inspiration from our previous work and discussed the option of future collaboration.
As we carry the same vision of (Cycling For Everyone), DCE is looking forward to join forces with UCI to spread our message around the world.
