Absolutely brilliant short film about Amsterdam as a city of cycling – top recommendation

I just came across this video (embedded in the link above) and after 10 seconds I knew that I had to share it.

The movie illustrates the whole ‘bikes > cars’ philosophy, and shows how it can be made to work for everyone’s benefit even in a busy capital city. When you put bikes first and cars second, the whole urban environment is transformed for the better.

One of the interviewees talks about how people are connected when they are on bikes and I completely understood what they meant – having lived in Amsterdam for a year I quickly picked up on the shared mentality and emergent camaraderie that exists between people on bikes and stands opposed to the isolation of the motorists.

Top video – thorough recommendation
