San Francisco is anything but flat, yet we insist on riding bikes here.

The "Holland is flat; it can't happen here" outlook is specious at best.

The reason the Netherlands uses bikes has much more to do with the 35 years of public policy toward advocating bike use.

Your body gets used to riding hills on a bike, just like it becomes accustomed to jamming itself into a cubicle to help pay for an automobile.
