Cycling In The Netherlands PDF File

".......Despite the increasing distances covered by the Dutch, the bicycle has retained its popularity.
The bicycle is used for more than a quarter of all journeys. In fact for distances up to 7.5 km, the
bicycle is the most popular means of transport. In 2007, 34% of all trips up to 7.5 km were made
by bicycle......In the Netherlands, many people do not make absolute choices between using the car or the bicycle over shorter distances. The image of ‘sometimes the bike and sometimes the car’ is dominant......"

Here is a-in English-PDF file in a magazine brochure layout style which I found to be attractive, informative, and a nice read.

I had a very decent book on touring in the Netherlands. I had planned a trip from Amersterdam to Bruges... all by bike trail. Unfortunately, I never made it. I'm waiting for cheap trans-Atlantic tramp steamers to return.

..yeah, still waiting.
