More From The Netherlands: Bike From Assen to Groningen

If you haven't seen the latest Streetfilm, Groningen: The World's Cycling City, you should check it out. Like, now! It has broken every single Streetfilms viewing record -- nearly 40,000 plays in just the first week.

One of the folks featured in that video is David Hembrow, who has been reporting on cycling in the Netherlands for many years via his blog, A View from the Cycle Path, which you will want to devour. He also leads group bike tours of many cities in the Netherlands.

I was very fortunate to spend some time with him, and we got along famously. Above is a video with highlights from our 20 mile bike journey from Assen to Groningen. It's only a small taste of what you'll experience in the Netherlands, but I think it will leave you craving more.

David recently put up a blog post to accompany the Groningen Streetfilm, which is full of references to a wealth of information about the city. Good stuff!
