How Groningen invented a cycling template for cities all over the world

How Groningen invented a cycling template for cities all over the world:

Traffic lights with rain sensors to give quicker priority to cyclists on wet days … Heated cycle paths so cyclists won’t slip during bouts of frost … This might sound like science fiction to you, but in the Dutch city of Groningen it will soon be everyday reality.

If Singapore’s going to be serious about becoming a cycling model city for Asia we really have to look at how countries with established cycling models do things.

It takes a lot of planning, foresight and gumption to get these things done. And that’s precisely what Singapore has a lot of.
