Cycling is so common that the tag “cyclist” has no meaning
March 25, 2007
Da’ Square Wheelman’s recent blog post contains the above quote from Roelof Wittink, a cycling advocate in the Netherlands. He says “Everyone is doing it – young people, retired people, mothers, ministers, members of the royal family.”
It shows what can happen if cycling is made a priority in all aspects of government planning.
I’m currently in the midst of planning a week-long Netherlands bike tour over the May school holidays and can’t wait to experience Europe’s cycling capital first hand.
