Bicycle Use Surpasses Car Use in Amsterdam
"More times than we can count, I've heard people say Portland's bike love a lot like what they have encountered in Amsterdam. But a new report out of The Netherlands shows that they really don't compare.
'The bicycle is the means of transport used most often in Amsterdam," reports Bike Europe. "Between 2005 and 2007 people in the city used their bikes on average 0.87 times a day, compared to 0.84 for their cars. This is the first time that bicycle use exceeds car use.'"
