Cycling Festival Europe 2016:

On April 16th around 400 cyclists celebrated the Cycling Festival Europe along Lake Eymir and the Middle East Technical University (METU) in Ankara.

Students, children and representatives of local authorities and embassies enjoyed the activities on site. The launch was carried out by Ambassador Kees van Rij and Mrs. Gülhan Yüksel, Deputy Secretary General of METU. The main goal was to draw attention to recreational cycling in Turkey and at the same time expose the Dutch EU Presidency. Given the enthusiastic response, the embassy and other local partners are considering to organize this event annually.
