"We all cycle" - the rise and rise of proud cycling cities


I'm spending the summer in the Netherlands, and have been learning so much about cycling in their cities.  What has become clear to me is that Dutch cities are increasingly competing for a share of the visitors who come here to learn about the Netherland's cycling and planning culture. Utrecht, host of this year's Grand Depart, is not alone in this - note how this incredible video touting their cycling achievements is presented in English rather than Dutch and really tries to "show off" the city as a beautiful place to visit (which it is, I hasten to add).



I think this is an interesting phenomenon for two reasons; firstly the internet is being recognised by cities as an effective tool for reaching and inspiring many people around the world, getting them excited and clearly demonstrating exportable concepts.  There's also a clear attempt here to attract high-spending tourists who are on learning-based trips.  In short, visiting cities to find out how they work has become a mini industry of its own!

What do you think? Have you spent time visiting cities in order to learn and find out what you can do in your own city? Do videos like this make you want to visit somewhere more? Could pro-cycling messages like this help to make the case for cycling in the city where you live?

I really like that Utrecht now publishes everything in English as well, but there are also all Dutch versions of everything you present here, the website and the videos. So this is also for the locals ;-) eg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMj5-OQFpzE

Thanks Mark! It is important things are done in the national language, but, at the risk of sounding rude, Dutch is a hard language for the rest of the world to master so it is really useful for us that these documents are also published in English. This is something that Utrecht (and also Groningen in fact) have over Amsterdam, who still publish their cycle policy in Dutch only...

When people say hackers are not reliable I laugh at them aloud. I was introduced to a competent hacker called herbert west when I had marital issues with my husband.
he helped me hack into his facebook account. I couldn’t believe it when it did it in just minutes. It is very good and trustworthy.
he offers other facebook, whatsapp instagram hacks. I want to fully recommend cyberhackspy01@gmail.com for helping me. he saved my life literally, at least I owe it publicity.

LAN Hacking
Friends,are you very much interested in hacking.Exactly 4yr ago i was writing online exam in my college.I do not know anything about that exam.A small doubt came to me that is
How to hack lan? so that i can hack online questions.While thinking a cute idea strikes me at that time.But i can't succeed with that idea..But i can hack other computer which
are connected to mainframe(LAN).Well I thought it was an easy tirck to hack system but it wasn't . So I contacted ecyberhacks@protonmail.com and got the right tool's and a few steps to hack LAN.

1)Click on Start.
2)Go to all programs>accessories.
3)Right click on command promt and then click proporties.
4)Click on Find target.
5)Now you entered in system 32.
6)Now search this file "ddeshare" without quotes.
7)Double click on Ddeshare.
8)Now go to shares and then click "trusted shares".
9)You will be seeing many terminals (computers)connected to lan.
10)Just double click on any of the system you want to hack.
With this is, you can hack others system which is connected to lan..

I dont know whether this tricks works in your college or not.Why because few colleges will be using high security alerts.

Well i can successfully hack others system. But it was a bit complicated.

Hopefully i found few information about hacking lan.First of all we have to hack system administration password.This can be done only by braking (PDC)Primary domain controller.You can get Hacking Tools from ecyberhacks@protonmail.com to hack lan.

After getting this tools, you can be able to hack administration password.PDC can be brake only when we are able to hack First system. And then take sam db to break administration password.Better to use tool from your system that enables you to use IPC connections to send executable files.
Here i am giving you trick I learnt from my encounter with ecyberhacks@protonmail.com to hack admin password:
first of all you have to scan the range for open 139, 445,3389,6129..
139,145 -->ipc hacking...
3389 --->remote desktop connetion(Best way for hacking :) )
6129 ----->It means that there is ranning dameware server.......

This trick is good enough for cracking administration password...
