The Netherlands is the number one country in the world when it comes to cycling. Our population of at least 17 million people shares 22.8 million bicycles. On short distances, and especially in the city, the bicycle constitutes a fully-fledged alternative to public transport and passenger cars. Bicycles fulfil more than one quarter of our overall transport needs. Our bicycle infrastructure is impressive: the Netherlands boasts a finely meshed network featuring 35,000 kilometres of (fast) bicycle tracks to go from A to B, but also for recreational purposes.
