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 Hembrowhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14543024940730663645noreply@blogger.comBlogger804125

The first cycle campaigning youtube videos are in danger because of The Orchard Music and Youtube's broken copyright infringement detection

13 May, 2019 - 20:25
Judy and I went touring in the Netherlands in 2002 and brought back many photos, but the even more primitive camera which I had then couldn't record video at all. YouTube was founded in 2005 and grew quite rapidly. At the end of 2006 it was bought out by Google and YouTube has remained under Google's ownership since that time.

Assen's new railway station

25 February, 2019 - 20:13

That station has now also been demolished and replaced with another entirely new design. The new station opened a few months ago. There are still a few details of the work to be completed, but everything is in place now. As was promised, the cycle-parking has again David Hembrowhttps://plus.google.com/114578085331408050106noreply@blogger.com0http://www.aviewfromthecyclepath.com/2019/02/assens-new-railway-station.html
