- Back in June, Anna Luten became Amsterdam’s (and actually the world’s) first bike mayor. She’s already moving on to better things–literally, NYC, where Luten hopes to set up a similar project to get more cyclists cycling.
- A recent survey by the web app Waze found that the most satisfied and happy drivers in the world are in the Netherlands. To quote Waze, “Despite the fact that the Netherlands is one of the most densely-populated countries in the world – behind Bangladesh, South Korea and Taiwan – the country performed best overall and outranked all other countries with the least amount of traffic.” Yep, bikes play a big role here in reducing traffic and keeping people in the city moving.
Other news? Well, we will see in 2017, when this blog will really kick off again!
