3 Countries where Bicycle Rides are Cultural

You may visit some cities or countries and be surprised by the preference of bicycles as a mode of transport. In such cities or countries, the use of bicycles has evolved into a culture by itself. This means that cycling becomes the main mode of transport. This is supported by a well developed cycling infrastructure. The following are some countries that have adopted bicycle culture:(Image by Ronsta)

1- The Netherlands

Arguably, this is the country that has the most pronounced bicycle culture. This can be seen in the number of bicycles being higher than population of the country. The country is densely populated and terrain is flat meaning the distances covered are minimal. The Dutch therefore prefer to cycle and bicycles have their own lanes governed by strict rules. Accidents are rare and cyclists are well insured thus allowing for a more confident and enjoyable ride.

2- Cambodia

Another country whose main mode of transport is by bicycle is Cambodia. This makes it ideal for visitors and locals to visit and experience the unique way of life of Cambodians in urban and rural areas. Rules for cycling are different depending on regions and visitors are advised to remain aware of the rules as they travel across the country.(Image by Patric)

3-Tel Aviv

This city is prominent for such activities as shopping, bars, beaches and cafes. The bicycle culture is adequate and lanes for bicycles are part of the side-walks (bicycle trail system). One is allowed to ride anywhere but there are some restrictions where bicycles are not allowed such as trains and bus terminals.
As can be seen, the bicycle culture is widespread across many countries. While it is easy for men to cycle, special designs have to be made to accommodate women. These modifications include tuned suspension, reducing diameter of the tubing and designing lighter weight bicycles.
