Growing up, “Going Dutch” meant splitting the bill instead of paying for a girl’s dinner on a date. I always thought there was something to that idea, but that is another story. Today, going dutch has a very different meaning to me: cycling. When it comes to cycling, no one does it better than the Dutch. From infrastructure to culture, cycling is deeply integrated into Dutch life. High ridership, diversity in demographics and trip purpose, and few accidents are just some of the many success stories from the Netherlands. In honor of these successes I am assembling a series of videos that capture the essence of Dutch cycling and show Americans what I believe we can achieve with some hard work and dedication. I did not make any of these videos. Please view them on Youtube for more information and links to additional videos. Enjoy!
