The Netherlands is well known world wide for its safe bike infrastructure and progressive bike policies. After the oil crisis in the early seventies and increasing numbers of children dying in traffic, the Netherlands started to build an unprecedented bicycle network that is still being expanded today. The Netherlands, roughly the size of the Province of Nova Scotia and just a wee bigger than Vancouver Island has 35,000 km (22,00 miles) of protected bike infrastructure.
