"Italians Bought More Bikes than Cars Last Year!"

Jump to last reply

This a headline in the NYTimes Business page recently.

One often does not think of Italy as a biker's mecca like Holland, Denmark and Germany for instance are.

Florence at least used to have free kikes a la Paris' Velib program long before Paris did. The number of bikes in a place like Florence have swelled during the decades I have been visiting there. And nearly no one wears a helmet!).

With cars being more and more banned from city centres locals are taking to the bike - biking made easier with fewer cars scooting about.
