I am from the Netherlands, a tiny country with a population of 16 million. A few more numbers: there are approximately 18 million bicycles around here. 84% of the Dutch owns one or more bicycles. In 2008 1.4 million new bikes were sold. Still there's a lot to do in order to reduce the use of cars: 50% of the trips by car are 7.5 kilometres or less.

In octobre I will ride the Eroica in Tuscany, Italy on my blue/ivory 1983 Gazelle Champion Mondial, in my opinion one of the most beautiful roadbikes ever built. In the meantime the bike needs quite some work. I just ordered a set of new spokes and nipples.

Hello Sjors, welcome to Bike Forums! Interesting factoids about cycling in Netherlands...

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
