How to use a bike 13 12, 12:22pm

We're probably closer to England's view on cycling, or America's. Cars are the most common mode of transportation, a bit less so in large cities where public transit systems are very efficient and comprehensive. Though we also have people who cycle daily mostly out of concern for the environment... and tend to get really snobby towards drivers who "don't share the road" (i.e. are not expecting cyclists of all things in the middle of the road built for cars, and come too close).
In recent years, at least in my city, there's been a LOT of roadwork widening roads and marking out bike lanes just for cyclists. I still hardly ever see one; an actual person on a bicycle, that is.
