Local authorities in the Netherlands face a constant challenge: where is the space to place racks to park all the bicycles Dutch cyclists bring into the centers of cities and towns. The number of parked bikes in the center of the city of Utrecht is amazing. Racks are placed everywhere to keep the bicycles from cluttering the streets but still no post or rail is unused. There are never enough parking spaces.

  1. I love this, I wish I lived there. Its amazing to see, but its probably just normal for them. In the U.S., public places have NO Riding signs and look at this, Its their way of life.

  2. Important side note: Utrecht has a university. There are a lot of students living in Utrecht or taking the train to and from Utrecht for classes. The bike is their main form of transportation (cheap!) so you can be certain that a big part of these bikes are owned by students. Also, most students have two bikes, where one of the two is used to go to and from the train station (the less attractive one, since there's a certain chance of your bike getting stolen). But still, a lot of bikes here!

  3. Today (February 18, 2017) it is written in a Dutch newspaper the city of Utrecht saves €250 million annually thanks to the cyclists. The revenue is because of cleaner air, less spending on health service, less congestion and less space needed for bike parking. A bike doesn't require that much space… The article is in Algemeen Dagblad, 'Dankzij fietsers bespaart Utrecht 250 miljoen Euro per jaar'. It is of course written in Dutch.
