That is surprising. I had the same perception about the Dutch, thinking cycling had always been a major part of their culture. When I lived in Germany several years ago I really enjoyed the fact that I could get around so easily on foot or by bike. I wonder if the German cycling infrastructure went through a similar development.

Very enlightening to see how the Dutch had to struggle to build a healthier, more respectful culture which integrated cycling! I had previously thought that cycling had always been part of the Dutch lifestyle, however it wasn't always the case! A friend recently shared these links with me.

Perhaps this can inspire us in the USA to follow suit...one community at a time...?
