Thijs van der Heijden

Thijs is passionate about bikes. A Dutch citizen (Australian permanent resident), he first rode a bike on the backyard grass of his parents' home when he was three and he has been using bicycles for transportation since. Arriving in Melbourne in 2011, the first thing Thijs did getting off the plane was to buy a new bike, and start exploring the city on two wheels. Back in the Netherlands, Thijs was an avid competitive cyclist achieving a handful of podium finishes during an eight-year racing career. Nowadays, he mostly just enjoys the scenery when riding.
Wondering about the origins of differences in bicycle use and attitudes between the Netherlands and Melbourne, and seeing the enormous potential for bikes in Australian cities, Thijs has been an active member of the Melbourne Bicycle User Group since 2012.
He is a certified AustCycle SkillsCoach and a Mountain bike trainer with the Dutch Recreational Cycling Union (NTFU), and enjoys helping others improve their riding skills. Being trained as a financial economist, Thijs currently works as a research fellow at the University of Melbourne.
