Bicycle Heaven(s), Bike-Sharing Saves Lives (+ Top Green Living Stories)

Bicycle Heaven(s), Bike-Sharing Saves Lives (+ Top Green Living Stories)

are quite widely considered to be the best large cities for bicycling in the world — which one is better depends on who you ask, but you’re unlikely to find someone who will tell you another large city is better. I’ve only been to Amsterdam (and that was 4 years ago), so I can’t judge just yet. Basically, though, if there’s such a thing as bicycle heaven, it probably looks something like on of these cities (or Groningen , which was a league ahead of Amsterdam in my eyes , but since its population is under 200,000 and it’s not a “global city,” it’s not often considered for the world title). So, from now on, I should have some good stuff to share from these cities that bike lovers and even those who aren’t bike lovers should be able to enjoy.
