Cycling facilities in the USA

Every country has its own bike culture. Types of bicycles, different legislation, age of cyclists, safety for cyclists etc.

In the USA bicycle infrastructure is taken seriously. In the larger cities cycling facilities are rapidly improving. Focusing primarily to the Netherlands as a great example. City planners and traffic engineers in the USA frequently visit The Netherlands to learn about the Dutch cycling infrastructure and cycling culture.
Better cycling facilities almost always go hand in hand with a change in the cycling culture. A more bicycle-friendly legislation and better behavior of cyclists automatically creates more respect and tolerance of motorists.
