Plus, there do tend to be a lot of teritorial dogs out in the county that will go after cyclists, walkers, and runners. It's the main reason you typically see walkers on the county back roads either carrying a sawn off broom handle or a pistol, and I've given up trying to go walking. The last time I tried was shortly after we bought our house, and I had two different large dogs start after me before I'd even gotten within fifty yards of their owner's property. That's not even counting coyotes, which have been getting more brash every year, and the odd and end half domesticated dog breed, half coyote pups some morons decide to raise. I'll stick to my collection of workout DVDs and weights, thanks. They're less effective, truth be told, but they're safer than trying to cycle, walk, or run where I happen to live.

Hubby and I tried living in city when we first got married. It was clostrophobic feeling for this country girl. As much as I might not like the neighbors' dog half a mile or so north and half a mile or so south of us, I need to see fields!

And it does have some advantages: gardening and romping about in the yard with the children if you can catch the cool of the morning and afternoon between the time it's too hot and when the bugs start coming out.

The Netherlands is the most bike friendly country in the world.

For every drivers lane there's a seperate lane for bikes.

Cars > black lane
Bikes > red lane

The red lane is for bikes AND fat American tourists.

 Quoting: Dutch Dude 913721


I believe that. I don't think I will ever get to live in the Netherlands but I will definitely move back to Minneapolis simply because I could and would ride my bike EVERYWHERE. I didn't need to use my car unless I was going farther than say 10 miles or more and on summer days I would routinely bike 50 miles just to get out of the city. If you're ever in the U.S. you would probably enjoy Minneapolis.

The Netherlands also has way less sows. (female b*****)

The food is partly to blame, and the expensiveness of the healthy alternatives, but that is not much of an excuse, as there are cheap ways to eat healthy enough to not get fat.

Yes there are alot of fatties here in North America, mainly due to sows, who inflate the obesity statistics (much like thier male counterparts drive up the crime rate).

However, there are many who are really into 'physical culture' just like in the netherlands and other places around the world.

One other thing to mention, from what I saw in the video, is that there seems to be more courtesy and respect for each other.

Didn't see one person on their cell phone while biking! If more Americans were forced to ride their bikes, you would surely see them on their phones. Most of us can't even assume the personal responsibility to put the phone down while driving something that can easily kill others. We would rather pass laws to try and stop the behavior.

I have been without a license for a period of 4 years. Rode my bike to work every day, round trip of 12 miles. Through all the seasons. And I live in Wisconsin! (For those who don't know we truly have all 4 seasons here.) This period of time completely changed my attitude and outlook on life. I always had to smile when people would say to me, "man, it must suck to not be able to drive," to which I would reply "not really." I then would tell them think of all those who have to secure shelter and food everyday of their lives. It makes you genuinely appreciate what you have.

Ahhh, seeing that video make me envious of the Netherlands!

Are you aware that the streets in Europe are much tighter and many were built before vehicles were created?

Also North America is much larger than Europe.
Are cities also sprawl out much more than European cities.

To get from one city to another in Canada is equivlant to crossing through countries in Europe.

But why would you think of any of that, your just out to make yourself look superior to you North American brothers.

The problem in the U.S. is high fructose corn syrup is added to everything, it is cheaper to buy dinner off the value menu at Micky D's than to buy vegetables, unless you live in a good size city or town close to a university biking is pretty much not an option due to having to get on interstates to get almost everywhere and no bike lanes on those. Actually, no bike lanes on most roads in the U.S. Some places don't even have sidewalks to walk on. Plus, some folks are just lazy as f****.

Anyway, I have been to Amsterdam only once and absolutely loved it. I would love to go back and visit again one day.

- Streets Tighter
Yes, but still we have extra seperate lanes for bikes

- America bigger than Europe
Ofcourse, but not as efficiently used as Europe
Europe has 800 million inhabitants, the U.S. around 300
Americans have a lot of space, but live in the cities.
Europeans live everywhere, much more balanced.

- Canada and Europe.
Totally not the same in many aspects.
The whole of Europe is civilized instead of bare land.

Canada has merely twice the amount of inhabitants of Holland.
