TOGETHER WE CYCLE (a documentary feature film) investigates the critical events that led to the revival of the Dutch cycling culture. For most people, cycling in the Netherlands appears like a natural phenomenon. However, until the 1970s, the development of mobility in the Netherlands followed trends across the globe. The bicycle had had its day, and the future belonged to the car. The only thing that had to be done was to adapt cities to the influx of cars. Then Dutch society took a different turn. Against all odds, people kept on cycling. The answer to the question of why this happened in the Netherlands is not straightforward. There are many factors, events, and circumstances that worked together, both socially and policy-wise. In Together We Cycle, key players tell the story of the bumpy road which led to the current state...where cycling is an obvious choice for most citizens.
GAZELLE is a 129-year-old Dutch bicycle manufacturer dedicated to the mission of making cycling accessible to as many people as possible. Gazelle came to the US with electric bicycles specifically to make this a reality for a broader range of people and to help remove some of the obstacles that prevent people from considering biking. Their aim is to import not only excellent bicycles that marry heritage and innovation but also Dutch cycling culture. Ultimately, Gazelle wants everyone to enjoy the ride, safely, confidently, and for a lifetime. Learn More
