Bicycle use is widespread in the Netherlands. In 27% of cases, people take the bicycle. In some cities, bicycles account for a much greater proportion yet. Nonetheless, opportunities exist for having more people travel by bicycle. After all, more than half of all car trips involve a distance shorter than 7.5 kilometres. This is a distance that most people find acceptable to cycle. And with the rapid advent of the e-bike, longer distances are quite cyclable as well.
