I don't think it would make much sense for the USA because of the low number of cyclists and the huge distances. Allthough it's useful for transportation, a lot of the network is from the early 20th century financed by the cycling association that believed it was important for the people to get out of their villages and see something of the 'world', which probably was the case.
Agreed, there are many bike paths, but that's never been in dispute. But you say you do have bike lanes, and I saw in the Google street view streets that don't even have a bike lane. Do Dutch cyclists simply avoid these streets that don't have bike lanes?
