Bicycling in the Netherlands and Europe, policies and practices. What can America learn from them?


The Netherlands has one of the highest bicycle uses in the world. Other countries continue to wonder why this is so and how they can even come close to their standards. To learn from their practices, we will present an overview of bicycling planning, infrastructure, policy, and culture in Dutch and other European cities from both a American and Dutch perspective. Although an often expressed argument is that European models cannot be applied directly to the American system, we will conclude with possible practices that could be implemented in America.
