As I think about cycling, it's nice to appreciate what other communites have accomplished to accommodate the average rider and commuter. Check out this video of Utrecht, Netherlands. I love the dedicated bike lanes. I can attest to the wonderfully signed pathways and volume of riders. My husband and I were able to cycle in the dark for two hours and reach our destination, just by following the route signs.
Oh, and I have a few days off in June. I'm already thinking about where I should go. The kids will be in school and I'll have three days to myself—a perfect opportunity to escape for a short tour. It's too bad the Netherlands is so far!
