General brochure about bicycle use and bicycle policy in the Netherlands.

This is the 2009 update of the general brochure about bicycle use and bicycle policy in the Netherlands, published by the Ministry of Transport and Fietsberaad. Information about the organisation and substance of Dutch bicycle policy is so often requested that a new actualised brochure was needed. The brochure is now also translated in French, German and Spanish. The brochure is NOT available in Dutch and will not be translated in Dutch.

The brochure offers compact information about a broad range of subjects, like:
· Bicycle use
· Traffic safety
· Motives for cycling
· Why is cycling so successful in the Netherlands
· The Dutch approach
· Ways to promote bicycle use
· How to find more information?
· Who cycles in the Netherlands?
· Success and fail factors for bicycle use
· Arguments pro cycling
· The Dutch approach
· Effective cycling policy
· Organization and responsibilities regarding to cycling in the Netherlands
· The bicycle as a vehicle for common everyday use for every purpose
· Bicycle education
· Concrete measures
· 27 examples from all over the country
· Many photos.
