There are a number of reasons why bicycle commuting is the dominant form of transportation in the Netherlands. The infrastructure for cycling is amazing with over 21,000-miles of bike paths, some of which are even heated in the winter months to keep them free of ice. No matter the infrastructure, what it really boils down to is the dedication of the cyclists who pedal to their destinations and face the elements day after day. The Dutch are arguably some of the most dedicated bicycle commuters on the planet. See for yourself in this humorous video of cyclists battling an epic windstorm on their bikes.
