A team of volunteers from the UK and Utrecht (What the Fiets
) will be loading a 40 foot shipping container (that’s big!) at the Fietsdepot in Amsterdam this morning.
The bikes will be distributed to people living in rural areas to make their daily commute to work and school more sustainable. As usual, a number of the bikes will be offered for a discount along with basic repair and maintenance training, whilst others will be sold on the local markets to recover the shipping costs.
