Tales Of Two Bicycling Countries

Contrasts of two countries' attitudes toward bicycling.

In the United States, CNN did a story on the clash between bicyclists and cars for space on the road. The link includes a map showing the U.S.'s 10 most friendly bicycle cities -- six in the West and four in the North. Not a single one in the Southeast or Texas.

That contrasts with this video showing a scene from a city in the Netherlands, where in this city an amazing 33 percent of all trips are done by bicycle.
