The Netherlands has just launched the Dutch Cycling Embassy.
As stated on their website, they are a comprehensive network of private companies, non-governmental organizations, universities and research organizations, and their national and local governments, coming together with the purpose of both promoting cycling for transportation, and helping interested parties to implement good policies and best practices in their own places of residence, with the expertise of the people who have made the Netherlands the best country in the world for cycling.
Here is their promotional video, done by our friend Marc from Amsterdamize.
And their PDF brochure:
Now, how do we get the Portland city government to talk to them, and then take them seriously? :)
