All about cycling in the Netherlands
Welcome to this blog about cycling in the Netherlands. The every day type of cycling, from A to B to get somewhere. Not cycling as a sport, not to be green but every day cycling on sit-up bicycles. My name is Mark Wagenbuur and I am one of the many Dutch who cycle almost every day. I have well over 40 years of experience in cycling in the Netherlands. From an early age I have also closely followed the planning and development of infrastructure in this country. For a short while in the past, I have also lived and cycled in Berlin. At present, I am cycling almost every day in the Dutch cities of ’s-Hertogenbosch and Utrecht, where I live and work respectively. I enjoy showing the world Dutch cycling and Dutch cycling infrastructure in my videos and blog posts.
in January 2009 I started publishing videos about cycling in the Netherlands on YouTube. These videos were soon picked up by blogger David Hembrow, who showed a lot of my material on his blog in 2009 and 2010. And then, for some months in 2011, he invited me to write my own posts to go with my videos on his blog. When David unexpectedly shut down his blog early 2012 (and reversed that decision later), I started my own blog. To make this blog complete, everything I ever made and wrote has been re-published here. This blog is now a complete overview of all my original work from January 2009 to now.
Please do not contact me with requests for interviews etc. Unfortunately I really cannot answer such requests, because of time reasons. My blog posts and videos should speak for themselves. Thanks.
