Cycling in Paradise

We're back from a bike trip that included riding in the Netherlands. We enjoyed separate bike paths along major intercity highways, signs for scenic and direct bike routes, traffic signals with sensors to detect cyclists and give them the green light, right-of-way and short-cuts for bikes, and this amazing bike parking ramp in central Amsterdam! Ordinary Dutch families were out cycling -- often all on one bike. Click on the title bar above ("Cycling in Paradise") for photos of family bikes and workbikes in Amsterdam.
