Bike Region Label awarded to bike region Drenthe
A fully elaborated report in which investments and future plans regarding cycling were outlined resulted in Drenthe being the first province ever to be awarded the UCI Bike Region Label.

Through the acknowledgement with the Bike Region Label and the awarding of the three Para-Cycling Events Drenthe will be able to realize their ambition regarding cycling and adapted cycling. With the UCI label all cycling activities of the province are taking center stage, internationally speaking. This will enable Drenthe to attract even more large cycling events in the future.
Delegates Brink and Jumelet: “our congratulations are for everyone who worked hard to achieve this. We will all go the extra mile, label in hand, to make Drenthe that magnificent cycling province. Whether it’s recreational cycling or top sport cycling for everybody: Drenthe offers it all.”

UCI President Brian Cookson: “What we saw in Drenthe we have never seen before anywhere in the world. Here cities cooperate to endorse cycling in the widest sense of the word. Drenthe with their many partners are an outstanding example for other countries and cities to follow. Also the close involvement of highly valued organizer The Organizing Connection leaves no doubt we are heading towards three fantastic events.”
