If more people did that here in the US, there'd be no reason for ridiculous deep water oil drilling.

Now that's setting the example! Public Transport and Bikes outnumber the 1 or 2 mopeds and cars which are probably seriously frowned upon way 2 go!

This will only happen before rushour when students have to go to their school. They will almost always take public transport because it's free for students.

@7, @13: the few normal cars you see are taxis, regular traffic is not allowed at all at that particular crossing.

Helmets are rarely needed for dutch bikers since there are special paths for bikers everywhere.

All the bikes look like something from the '60's with the little platform over the rear wheel. Brings back memories from when I was a kid.
I did not see a single collision during that whole vid.....impressive.

Funny to see this, being part of this happening regularly. I was hoping to find myself as well, but no cigar. I have seen people filming here, though.

#25 What's so amazing about bendy buses? A little more to the right and they could have shot double-bendy buses, i was like :O :D when I first saw them when I first came to Utrecht.

There's a lot of great things to be said for getting around on a bike. Too bad I live 26 miles from work and bring my 3 kids to work with me during the summer for childcare.

Anyone notice that there are no obese people riding the bikes? They should make cars with the same exercise requirements!
