If you cycle when it's cold, you get warm. If you cycle when it's hot, you get even hotter and die. easy mode my ass, I'm living life on the edge

That works in moderately cool weather. But if it's -20°C and you cycle 20km/h with a headwind of 10km/h the effect on your body is probably in the -40°C. Unbearable

On high altitude areas mostly, every once in a while a freak day where we get whole country coverd in snow. But we are a costal country so we are a bit hotter than most EU and we get less snow. We don't get -20ºC here, at max -5/6ºC

Yeah ik but obviously it won’t work when you live 30 km from the nearest town with sub par infrastructure which is probably the case in lower density zones which they undoubtedly have

There is public transport. You should be able to choose your transport but you should also be taxed more for making the environment dirty.

So we should get taxed more because of where we live?

Of course, people who use cars should be taxed more regardless of where they live. These people are making our Earth dirty and deserve to be punished, tax increase is a slap on the wrist. I would say a prison sentence is fair but we are not barbaric.

Lul when most world polution is made by big companies and the biggest polluter on earth if by far the transportation industry. Either it being food, goods or people. You should be slapped on the wrist for following stupid propaganda that leads you to believe that normal workers are the biggest polluters.

No surprises here, your wet dream is probably that we all live like canned sardines eating government-supplied crickets. That's no way to live I think the EU should punish Germany for their failed energy politics. Our energy is 85%+ carbon neutral.

You should consider the environment. If you aren't cycling, using electric cars and still consuming meat, you're getting a downdoot.

Oh no a downdoot?! D: are you sure? that seems a bit extreme don't you think?

That's reasonable, for sure if I lived let's say under 5km from work in a decent climate I might commute with a bike or electric scooter or something.

Ye we don't have hills, very rarely snow or freezing and everything within 10 km so in NL cycling makes a lot of sense

I agree on meat part But I think cycling is very good,we dont decide,we advise you to cycle because its healthy and fun.

Balance your diet, steaks frequently doesnt work for everyone but with a good all around diet it can work! Buying local does a lot to cut down the carbon footprint though Cycling is very good for you, not only the environment. Cutting your time spent in cars also means you pay less for fuel! But of course when it becomes medically risky not to use a car for example cold weather then of course your health comes first!
