Mama Agatha shines at 1st Bicycle Festival in Amsterdam

On Saturday, June 22 the first Bicycle Festival took place in Amsterdam’s Bijlmer/Southeast neighbourhood. The inaugural event was organized by Mama Agatha and her team.

Ten years ago, Mama Agatha approached Mobycon with the plan to give cycling lessons in the neighbourhood of Amsterdam Southeast. We happily supported her, assisting with setting up the cycling lessons and providing train-the-trainer programs to prepare the teachers for successful training. In recent years Mobycon has maintained our contributions to Mama Agatha’s work, through practical initiatives liking helping to reduce transport poverty at the local level.

At the event, Rob van der Bijl thanked her, also on behalf of the Dutch Cycling Embassy, in a lovely speech noting her generous efforts over the past 10 years, for which she received a certificate.

During the Bicycle Festival, the documentary about Mama Agatha was shown, which you can view HERE.
