The Dutch know everything!

If anyone has any connections to the city fathers/mothers in their town, see if you can get this to the appropriate people. This is a fantastic video of a UK Parliamentary excursion to The Netherlands to investigate how their biking/public transit work together. Normal people, in normal clothes, biking EVERYWHERE, carrying everything from small bags to a CELLO. Hand to god, I’m not making this up. It’s towards the end of the video. Women in high-heeled boots, no spandex in sight.

Here’s the link again, in case you missed it up above: Biking in The Netherlands

Much thanks to JustWilliams for posting the link on his blog!

    They don’t wear helmets over there. We didn’t when we visited. It’s simply “different” in Holland. We never felt at risk. Here we do, Ho hum…..

    Oh, that would be so nice to feel safe and free enough to ride without a helmet!
