History of Cycle Paths in the Netherlands

November 23, 2010

You don’t get cycling utopia without a bit of forward-planning. Note the complete absence of cyclists dying in this film. Are the Dutch politicians smarter than ours I ask myself?

Thanks to copenhagenize for the link.

    Very nice video of The Netherlands. I lived most of my life over there, and I can confirm, that these cycleways are very very good!!
    Nice to see the history of this. Thanks.

      When I travelled there as a young man I was more interested in large motorcycles but I do remember the number of bicycles in Amsterdam. Remembering anything after a stay in Amsterdam at 19 is a challenge!
