      Amsterdam Chooses Bicycle as Unique Selling Point

      AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands � Amsterdam, the world�s number one
      cycling city with some 60% of all trips in the city centre made by
      bicycle, wants to turn into the world�s centre of expertise on
      sustainable mobility. A program to reach that goal was launched on
      Tuesday.

      Amsterdam City Council and various Amsterdam businesses and
      organizations have joined together in a platform for sustainable
      mobility: Amsterdam Cycling to Sustainability. A declaration of
      intent was signed on Tuesday 1st April by Councillor Tjeerd Herrema
      and the initiators Jos Louwman of MacBike and Pascal van den Noort
      from V�lo Mondial. Prominent Amsterdam businesses and organizations
      such as the RAI association, JCDecaux, the Amsterdam Innovation
      Motor, the Fietsfabriek and Mister Green, also signed the declaration
      of intent.

      Sustainable mobility will ensure that Amsterdam maintains its
      accessibility and quality of life. Amsterdam is on the right path.
      Bicycles are widely used in the city and there are all sorts of
      positive initiatives in the field of sustainable mobility. There is,
      however, a lot still to be done which is why the Amsterdam City
      Council and various Amsterdam businesses and organizations are
      working together to promote sustainable mobility in Amsterdam.

      The aim of the initiative is to support and develop projects in which
      all sorts of sustainable mobility can be stimulated. In addition the
      platform would like to promote Amsterdam internationally as a
      sustainably mobile city. The bicycle has been chosen as Amsterdam�s
      unique selling point. Furthermore the platform aims to set up an
      Amsterdam centre of expertise on sustainable mobility, together with
      other expert bodies in Amsterdam.
