The Hague's collection campaign for the ANWB Kinderfietsenplan (children’s bicycle recycle project) has ended. But the ANWB Kinderfietsenplan is ongoing. You can still donate used children's bicycles.

Do you have a children’s bicycle you are no longer using in your shed or cellar? Bring it to 1 of the locations below. You can donate children’s bicycles with wheels up to 28 inches (wheel diameter size for adult bikes). In addition to city bikes, other types of children’s bikes are welcome. Children can use refurbished mountain bikes and racing bikes in sports centres as well.

Collection points:

  • ANWB headquarters, Wassenaarseweg 220
  • Stichting Leren Doen, Verheeskade 5

Success

More than 1,000 children's bicycles were donated. Stichting Leren Doen has already fixed up and given away 150 of these bikes. Before the summer holidays another 100 children will also get a new bike.

Kinderfietsenplan in The Hague

1 in 9 children in the Netherlands does not have his own bike. The municipality thinks it is important for every child to able to ride a bike to get to school, friends, sporting activities or other activities. This is why The Hague took part in the ANWB Kinderfietsenplan. The municipality is collecting bicycles, refurbishing them and making sure they get to children in need.
