The Netherlands is one of the most bicycle-friendly countries in the world - not surprisingly as it's also one of the flattest.

So cycle paths and other facilities abound. I was particularly impressed with this cycle parking lot here in Apeldoorn, in front of the new town hall, where the stands even have covers that you can clip down over your saddle to either shade it from the summer sun or keep it dry on rainy days.

Yep, excellent idea - no hot sticky bums, nor cold damp squelchy ones for the Apeldoorners LOL ;)
