See the movie trailer for Riding Bikes with the Dutch
The first time I stepped off the train in Amsterdam I was literally speechless. As soon as I set foot on the ground I was almost run over by a mob of bikes. I turned to look up and to my amazement there was a 3 level structure dedicated to just parking bicycles. Everyone from three years old to 93 seemed to be tooling around the city on two wheels. This was too much to take in with just my own eyes. I needed to share this with everyone I could and this is why I made my film: Riding Bikes with the Dutch.
Bikes aren't just for Lance Armstrong. You don't have to have the latest carbon fiber frame and wear a spandex body suit to ride a bike...what a revelation.
Bicycling is a lifestyle - not just a race, a hobby, or the latest fashion craze.
Bikes aren't just for kids. Adults can play too!
Cars treat bikes with respect. Cyclists are treated like real modes of transportation, not second class citizens.
Cities should be designed for people - not cars.
Bicycling infrastructure is a key part of the planning process for new construction, not an after thought.
