BICYCLE DUTCH

All about cycling in the Netherlands

Happy Holidays

Now that the darkest time of the year is here, cities have brought out pretty lights to make all that darkness a bit more bearable. Streets around the world have been decorated with light ornaments and the cities in the Netherlands are no different. Or maybe they are… nowhere in the world can you see more people cycling against that festive backdrop of sparkling lights, even on cold winter nights. As ever, I think it is a joy to watch the people on their bicycles rolling by in such great numbers.

With this final video of 2014 I would like to thank you all for following my blog. Thanks for your comments, for your encouragements and – for quite a number of people – thank you even more for your financial support!

I would like to wish you all Happy Holidays, or Fijne Feestdagen!

    Happy Holidays to you too! I’m thoroughly enjoying your videos. Great quality and very informative.

    I’m retired and cycle in the Atlanta area. I did over 8000 miles this year! My community is working on improving things for cyclists and pedestrians, but we have a long ways to go.

    Wow the Netherlands is truly heaven for cycling. Love the video you post and the atmosphere over there! Helsinki (where I reside now) should look at this and upgrade the cycling roads🙂

    And Happy Holidays to you too. Plus another big thank you for your positivity and for continuing to show the world what active sustainable travel can be like, and how it can work.

    I was thinking just this morning – we complain that things aren’t good enough (for cycling) here, and that they’re better elsewhere, but often people will dismiss complaints, saying “the grass is always greener on the other side”. It always helps to have someone on “the other side” saying “yes, actually the grass is greener here, and this is how and why”. 🙂

    Something to keep in mind as another lorry thunders past in the dark, inches away and soaking me from the puddles again…
