Sound preparation makes for a carefree TOP Week! Below is a list of things that you need to bring:
The activities during TOP Week are spread out all over Tilburg. You cannot do without a bike, as you will be cycling from one activity to the next. Note that the police will be carrying out extra stolen bike checks this week! You can of course also rent bikes in Tilburg. Make sure if you want to rent one to arrange things in time, because there are lots of people renting bikes this week. During the Registration Days at the Tilburg University campus, it will be possible to buy or rent a bicycle.
Don’t feel like bringing your bicycle with you from home? Use a Swapfiets!
