I live in Buffalo NY and it's going to take more than bike highways and rental bikes to get me to commute by bike in the dead of winter...that being said.....I think Amsterdam's bike culture is great and having something like that that could be used even half the year would be fantastic!
They are truly great, when we went to London we saw them everywhere, they have also put in cycling highways and painted them blue which is fab - unfortunately when we were in London we had the children and they don't come with optional child seats!!!
Next time I go without children I shall definitely be hiring one to explore!
"First Paris, now London, Melbourne, Washington, Montreal, Hangzhou — the world’s biggest cities are looking for two-wheeled transportation triumph in the bicycle, and inexpensive rental systems seem to be popping up everywhere."
American cities could learn MUCH from others around the globe...!
