It’s impossible to be interested in bicycling, and more specifically cycling infrastructure, and not wonder how the Netherlands did it. By “did it” I mean create a kind of cycling Utopia that is the measure against which the rest of the world is evaluated. Below are two interesting videos, one shows the history of creating bicycle-only paths in the Netherlands, and the other shows one of the ways (education) that Netherlanders become excellent cyclists. I would love to see both increase in the U.S. I don’t post these because I have been to the Netherlands (which I have not) but because I continue to be amazed at what I find via the Interwebs.
