Learning to cycle at school in Europe: Brett Petzer provides the Dutch approach for the FUB

On Friday, March 26th, the French Federation of Bicycle Users (FUB) is hosting a webinar to highlight concrete examples of European initiatives focused on the education, enabling and encouragement of children learning to ride a bicycle. Looking at different European approaches, several speakers from countries Belgium, Scotland, Norway, the Netherlands and Switzerland will present approaches specific to their individual cycling cultures in order to help inspire the development, improvement and enrichment of practices in France. Our newest colleague, Brett Petzer, joins the speakers to provide the Dutch context of children and cycling.
