Bike for Europe is a cross-border cycling tour which aims to promote the bicycle as a sustainable and active means of transportation, physical activity in general as well as international co-operation between European countries with a special focus on the social inclusion through sport. Two teams of cyclists will cycle across Europe, starting on 1 September separately from two different countries, the Netherlands and Greece. The tour will finish on 22 September in Vienna, Austria, which is hosting the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, and be part of the official opening of the European Week of Sport 2018.
On Sunday 2nd September the Northern team will make a stop in Fietslab Gelderland. For this special occasion we proudly present the short documentary Mama Agatha, about the passionate Agatha Frimpong who teaches migrant women to cycle in Amsterdam. The students learn more than just riding a bicycle, they gain self-confidence and are encouraged to find their own way in society. Agatha Frimpong will be present at the screening and will answer a number of questions afterwards.
