The coronalockdowns seemed to give the bicycle a big boost. Bicycle shops were so busy that many models, especially e-bikes, were difficult to supply. An analysis of the CBS figures by industry club BOVAG nuances this picture: total bicycle use decreased by 13 percent in 2020 compared to the previous year. On average, every Dutch person aged 12 years and older cycled 966 kilometers per year. That is 146 kilometers less than in 2019.
