very interesting history of cycling in Amsterdam that makes you want to go there and hop on a bike. Lots of fun historical detail.

"While my peers treated obtaining a driver's license as a vital - almost universal - rite of passage, I was uninterested in cars. My classmates eagerly became motorists, while I remained a devoted cyclist. As I grew older, bike riding continued to fascinate me far more than car driving."
