How the Dutch got their Cycle Paths

Hey all!

I know I’ve been AWOL at any rides lately…yes, I have been forgoing the riding for the sake of running as of late but that will change soon enough, I promise.  Of course, I am a bit concerned you’re all going to ride me into the ground on the first few, but stubborness has got to count for something to help keep me hooked onto the pack!

Anyway – wanted to share this video link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XuBdf9jYj7o  with a bit of history as to how Holland developed its path system.  I so wish some sort of similar political will could be found here someday…

See you all soon – Val

  1. There must have been something about Dutch culture that was pro-cycling even before the revolution that took place in the 70’s. The footage in the video about the sad state of affairs for cycling paths, in pre-WWII Holland, had me thinking they clearly have no clue how lousy it is in Manitoba. We still don’t have even the infrastructure that they were ashamed of 80 years ago.
