If you have read “Crossing Europe on a Bike Called Reggie” you may recall that I am a fan of Luxembourg. It was such an interesting place. I suppose I’m mainly referring to the capital itself rather than the country as my stay was a brief one and I only spent a few hours cycling from the French border to Luxembourg City and then eastward towards the Mosel and back into France. Perhaps I should have stuck around a little longer. David Thomas, who I think lives in Luxembourg, has emailed telling me about a website he has written for. The website does a pretty good job of collating information about cycling in Luxembourg and putting it online. It’s called Cycle Luxembourg (and has a Twitter account of the same name). David has also pointed me in the direction of the video below which explains a neat system for route-finding that has been introduced in The Netherlands. The commentator is no David Attenborough but it’s an interesting take on the signage-for-cyclists issue. As you watch the video, please remember (if you live in the UK as many of you do) not to feel too disheartened that you cycle in a country that doesn’t have facilities that match with those of The Netherlands. I have now cycled in fourteen European countries and I can say that we don’t do too badly here in the UK. Believe me, the gap between where we are and The Netherlands is far smaller than the gap between the UK and those countries at the bottom of the list!
