One of the nicest surprises from the Tour de France was this excellent Chris Boardman video essay on Dutch cycling infrastructure:
By and large it was a study in the style of Mark Wagenbuur's videos, complete with one of Wagenbuur's own clips of a "rush hour" Dutch cycling junction.
Well I've spent a couple of days, now, riding around the streets of Utrecht and I've seen tens of thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of bikes, but I haven't seen a single cyclist. I've just seen normal people in normal clothes doing normal things: dressed for the destination, not the journey.
Three cheers to Chris Boardman, the Olympic Cyclist who rejects Cyclism!
RT @CTC_Cyclists: Bradford's junction V same in Denmark. 600miles from here. One prioritises cars, the other people. pic.twitter.com/HFTk1xaKOb— Chris Boardman (@Chris_Boardman) May 18, 2015
