I've heard WONDERFUL things about the Netherlands and their cycling system / network!

Shame my Dutch grandfather isn't around today for me to give a high five to...lol! He emigrated from Netherlands as a youngster.

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!

My mantra: Exercise frequently! Eat reasonably!

They have rentals in Amsterdam too, as well as immaculate bike highways throughout the city center, and everyone rides their bike to work in the dead of winter.

We've got 'em in Denver!!!
We used the system in Paris a few years ago, and it was awesome.

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!
