BYCS is an Amsterdam-based social enterprise driven by the belief that bicycles transform cities and cities transform the world. We work internationally with businesses, governments and non-profits to initiate and scale breakthrough ideas around cycling.



We are driven by a clear and powerful mission. We call this 50by30: half of all city trips by bike by 2030. It demands the brightest ideas and the most determined action. And we believe it will unlock massive social, environmental and economic gains for everyone. Cities must prepare themselves for the challenges of tomorrow.

Increasing cycling not only provides clean, accessible mobility solutions but also ensures better mental and physical health, promotes community strength, protects the environment and supports a sustainable economy. Cycling is more than transportation. It is transformation. In all our work, we always ask: ‘Where can the bicycle take us?’


Whatever stage of cycling maturity your city or business is at, and wherever you are in the world, we can support your progress. We are a team of Bicycle Futurists, cultural programmers, communicators, connectors and campaign creators.

We can create bespoke solutions for you through our Impact Services or we invite you to adopt one of our established BYCS ProgramsAlternatively, you can Partner with us; collaborate on or co-fund our work, like our Bicycle Mayor network and city cycling research, to have a global impact.
