The Netherlands is the world's leading country in bicycle use and in cycling policy. In the 1990's we have been involved in the successful Dutch National Cycling Master Plan. Ever since, Ligtermoet & Partners has been a leading consultancy firm in cycling policy in all its various aspects. We have done planning and designing work on cycling for many cities in the Netherlands and Belgium, including the cities of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Groningen, Antwerp (BE) and Brussels (BE). We have set up the Dutch National Design Guidelines Cycling Infrastructure 2006 ("Ontwerpwijzer Fietsverkeer"). L&P can make this comprehensive expertise available to the foreign cities as well. We have substantial consulting experience in setting up cycling strategies in foreign countries with no or hardly any experience in everyday cycling: Prague (CZ), Venice (IT), Grenoble (FR), Tczew (PO) and several cities in the Wallon region (BE) among others. For the European Presto-projects we have analysed cycling guidelines in many European countries and presented essential lessons for improving cycling conditions. We have been leading partner in the European QUEST-project consulting 50 medium sized cities in 11 countries on Sustainable Mobility, in which most cities are now setting up new cycling strategies.
