How the Dutch got their cycling infrastructure.

I lived in Amsterdam in 72.The protest outside the Rijksmuseum of thousands of people laying with their bikes was a  wow moment.I love to look out on Museumplein now and look at the green space and a cycle route that goes right through the middle of the museum.People just kicked the cars out then and it was great to see the council has invested in car grabbers,pulling the illegally parked cars off the streets to be recycled.

Now,there’s nearly 1 million bicycles in Amsterdam.
