My apologies if everyone else here has already seen this series; I only just discovered it. IMO all of the videos are worth watching, but I found this series particularly enlightening.

I recently discovered Not Just Bikes channel on YouTube and I am hooked on it. Great videos that get the message across without all the BS that lots of other people insist on filling their videos with, and with a great sense of humor (or humour, since he is Canadian) to boot.

My wife and I are trying to plan our escape from where we currently live but cannot seem to find the right place for us. These videos just keep making the case for the Netherlands stronger and stronger.

Yeah, my girlfriend and I, every time we think about moving out of the city, the thought of having to get in a car to get somewhere stops us dead. She can't even drive!

I agree, many cycling advocacy video's are made with a fixed idea what needs to be done in terms of cycling infrastructure, usually bike lanes, and then show bike lanes in the Netherlands as proof it works. I live in The Netherlands and believe bike lanes are mostly accomodating drivers. This guy has a deeper understanding of how it works and how many things are related, and humour.
