Why is it that people cycle more in the Netherlands than in any other country ? The answer is in the infrastructure. Long established blog with content up to the present day detailing how the infrastructure of the Netherlands makes cycling so pleasant that almost everyone cycles in this country and a higher proportion of cycle journeys are made here than anywhere elseDavid Hembrowhttps://plus.google.com/114578085331408050106noreply@blogger.comBlogger800125

To the sea and back in January. A winter ride through Drenthe and Groningen + PPPPPP

21 January, 2019 - 12:38
We have installed triple glazing in some of our windows. These ice crystals were on the outside when I set off yesterday. Yesterday was the date of the Noordelijke Velomobiel Tocht - a winter recreational ride starting in Groningen and heading to the coast and back. The distance of the ride was supposed to be around 80 km, but it ended up a bit longer and when I added my ride from Assen to David Hembrowhttps://plus.google.com/114578085331408050106noreply@blogger.com0http://www.aviewfromthecyclepath.com/2019/01/to-sea-and-back-in-january-winter-ride.html

Daddy, what did you do in the climate war ?

13 December, 2018 - 12:14
100 years old and subtly updated for the war that we're facing now. Do you remember the 8th of October 2018 ? That was the day when the world's newspapers carried stories about the IPCC's latest report on climate change. We were told that we faced catastrophe if we do not take serious action, starting right now, to tackle climate change within 12 years. We were informed about the most serious David Hembrowhttps://plus.google.com/114578085331408050106noreply@blogger.com0http://www.aviewfromthecyclepath.com/2018/12/daddy-what-did-you-do-in-climate-war.html

Enough of cars... Overuse of motorized transport is destroying everything.

4 December, 2018 - 20:50
Le Curé: "I don't like cars". Three months ago our car reached the end of its economical life and we took it to be scrapped. I'm not missing it. I never used it much anyway. When we first moved to the Netherlands we brought our car with us from the UK but after we arrived it didn't move a single centimetre until more than three years had passed and we finally got around to registering and David Hembrowhttps://plus.google.com/114578085331408050106noreply@blogger.com0http://www.aviewfromthecyclepath.com/2018/12/enough-of-cars-overuse-of-motorized.html

Over the hills and far away - Drenthe has built a hill for cyclists

19 October, 2018 - 18:01
Steve, Peter and myself on "our" new hill: The "Col du VAM". It's the highest point in Drenthe at 4800 cm above sea level ! Each week, a small group of recumbent cyclists ride together from Assen on short touring rides. This morning three of us went on a 70 km round trip to ride up a new hill which Drenthe has created for cyclists of all kinds to ride over. "Our" new hill is now the highest David Hembrowhttps://plus.google.com/114578085331408050106noreply@blogger.com0http://www.aviewfromthecyclepath.com/2018/10/over-hills-and-far-away-drenthe-has.html

Zwolle: The Dutch city which changed its roundabouts from one unsafe design to another unsafe design

9 October, 2018 - 10:56
I've written three times before (1, 2, 3) about how the roundabouts in Zwolle cause danger for cyclists. Each time, I've pointed out that the use of the "priority" roundabout design in that city results in those roundabouts always featuring as the most dangerous sites for cyclists in the entire city. The top ten list of most dangerous locations for cyclists in Zwolle according to the David Hembrowhttps://plus.google.com/114578085331408050106noreply@blogger.com0http://www.aviewfromthecyclepath.com/2018/10/zwolle-dutch-city-which-changed-its.html
