Cycling in the Netherlands
Based on our 'Fietsen in cijfers' leaflet, Mark Wagenbuur made this movie about cycling in the Netherlands:

Cycling Cities
The magazine 'Vogelvrije Fietser' of the Fietsersbond was published in december 2009 in a special English edition called Cycling Cities. The reason: the Climate conference in december 2009 in Copenhagen. Cycling Cities writes about the successes of two cycle-countries in Central Europe: The Netherlands and Denmark. The Danish Cyclists' Union distributed Cycling Cities in Copenhagen.
