If you’ve read many of my posts at all, you know that I love bikes — they are one of the greenest things on the planet, are cheap, are widely available, and are fun and relaxing to ride. You may also know that I lived in the Netherlands for 5 months, perhaps the best country in the world for bicycling.

So, when a reader recently shared this awesome time-lapse video of rush hour in Utrecht, it was a given I’d have to publish it. Groningen was very similar –smaller city but even bigger bicycle commute rate, so seemed like a similar number of bicyclists but even fewer large vehicles.

Sort of annoyingly, but also usefully, the video has a link to check out 2011’s time-lapse (which is actually in normal speed) — that is below as well.

More great bicycling or Netherlands videos to share?
