A resenting beep, a swerve in close, hostile abuse and profanity from a drivers window, it is the daily commute here in the UK. We should follow the "cycle path" laid by our Euro pals. We have much to learn.
Cyclists rule in Amsterdam and great pains have been taken to accommodate them: the city is equipped with an elaborate network of cycle-paths and lanes, so safe and comfortable that even toddlers and elderly people use bikes as the easiest mode of transport. It’s not only Amsterdam which boasts a network of cycle-paths, of course; you’ll find them in all Dutch cities.
