      Another nice YouTube channel for the enjoyment of biking through the Netherlands. Not as lengthy in time as the Norwegian rail videos, but still so cool to see people actually traveling long distances on infrastructure made just for bikes, not cars. It also shows things like upgrades, new facilities, and better interaction with cars and people (such as a proposed overhead bicycle traffic circle over a car intersection) as well as daily mundane things people do while getting around on bikes.

      One was my Dad when he was in his early 60’s. We were a little worried about him, but he had no problems at all, and said it was one of the best things he’s ever done in his life.

      with my two sons 20 years ago….Very doable….Now in my early 70’s I don’t do so much bike-riding…But always enjoyable to see how bikeable Europe is – as well as its other community-friendly infrastructure.

        but that was back in the early 1990s. So much has changed for biking infrastructure now, in comparison. Basically, it’s gotten even better, as depicted in the video above. The YT channel Not Just Bikes also shows how much better it is and also points out how we could improve things over here (he used to live in “Fake London” Ontario). Here’s one of his videos about that. They’re funny, too 😄
