We Wouldn't Mind The Wonderful Morning Bike Commute in The Netherlands

It’s 2015, which means you can now enjoy a bike ride through the Netherlands from the comfort of your home.
To be more precise, you can enjoy a calming video of a commuter entering what has to be the world’s most whimsical traffic conditions on his way to work.
Sadly, that’s all the information we have on this intrepid bike rider. But it’s appropriate for a simple video that actually has us craving a bike ride around Utrecht, which seems to be extremely kind to bicyclists.
As Tim states on YouTube, this is rush hour in Utrecht, which is far more pleasant than the traffic jam they have going on in China.
Tim goes on to state that this is a daily occurrence; his daily commute in this wonderful city. And, the perspective changes at about eight minutes and 30 seconds if you care to travel along for that duration.
Utrecht.nl notes that this is indeed far from a strange occurrence: “Utrecht is a bristling, bicycle-friendly city. Every day, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., about 100,000 cyclists ride to their work, school, university, public transport, shops or home through the city center.”
The website reminds that the roads belong to the human-powered conveyances, something that helps work towards making Utrecht the most “bike friendly” in the world.
We would love nothing more than to one day test that theory for ourselves.
