Cycling facts 2023

The Dutch cover more than one-quarter (28%) of their journeys in the Netherlands by bicycle. As such, cycling fulfils an important role in the Dutch mobility system. This share is relatively stable over time. Although the share decreased slightly during the COVID pandemic in 2020 and 2021, the share in 2022 is back to the same level as in the period 2012-2019. The Netherlands Institute for Transport Policy Analysis (KiM) has compiled new insights and up-to-date data on bicycle use in the Netherlands for the third time in the new brochure Cycling facts 2023.
