This is how morning rush hour looks like in the Netherlands.
The footage was taken at the 4th largest city in the Netherlands. It shows a cycle path in Utrecht near the central railway station where all the main cycle routes of Utrecht come together.
The Bicycle Dutch site operator explains why he made the video, and marvels on how people were criticizing the lack of helmets in which he attributes it to “how safe it really is to cycle, especially in the Netherlands.”
The streets look busy and congested with bikes because 33% of ALL trips are made by bicycle.
