Cyclist Day in the Netherlands (14/05)

On Cyclist Day (Landelijke Fietsdag), the entire population of the Netherlands gets on their bikes and hits the road. This holiday is held annually in the country on the second Saturday of May. And although it does not have an official status, it is very popular in the country.

But in 2021, due to the coronavirus pandemic, these events may be canceled.

Bicycles are common throughout the Kingdom of the Netherlands almost everywhere. They are unusually numerous, which, in addition to favorable climatic conditions, is facilitated by a developed infrastructure (a network of special cycle roads, bicycle traffic lights, etc.). The average Dutchman keeps several bicycles in his house.
