I think I'd just be happy if the US could do away with the **point** system for taking bikes out.
To be honest, the virtrol towards cyclists was the reason I didn't do a lot of riding when I moved here. There was a cyclist hit and the comments in the online version of the paper were chilling. I think those were just trolls though because so far as least I haven't had any problems.
It probably helps that the city has been working to add bike lanes and greenways around.

I'm from Germany and I didn't even know we had something like a National Cycling Plan... But it's good to know that it exists and that they're planning to improve conditions for us cyclists. Thanks for sharing!
