Wheels of time

I'm not sure John Lauder of Sustrans is correct when he writes that the Netherlands did not become a cycling nation until 30 to 40 years ago (Letters, February 11).

Dutch football fans are famous for goading German supporters with chants of "Give us back our bicycles", referring, apparently, to thefts by occupation troops during the Second World War.

For the record, I am a cyclist and always stop at red lights.
