Dutch Rail wants more bikes

Dutch Rail wants to promote the use of cycles, hoping to increase the number of bike journeys made to and from stations to one million by 2010, reports news agency GPD.

At present almost 50% of passengers arrive at their local railway station on a bike but only 10% cycle the last leg of their journey.
The plan is to expand the number of bike hire outlets at railway stations from 120 now to 200, says Dutch Rail.
