Netherlands Cycling Paradise

Yup, Netherlands is a cycling paradise. They've got great infrastructure for cyclist that we can just dream of.
Houten is one of the best place for cyclists, and despite their advancement they still continue to improve it. They really study on how to make the street safer for everyone. In the Netherlands, they don't worry about cars families pedal along the road worry free. Most of the major street here have separate bike lanes, traffic lights for cyclists, and bike highways.

Segregated bike lanes have right of way when crossing side roads. You can see markings that instruct cars to give way to the cyclist coming in and out of the side road. They also have small protective kerbs and markers.

Netherlands is a dream come true for cyclists.
