And they call themselves green? Their yellow bellies is what they are! I do ride a bike quite a bit but I never considered myself green.

...we have cycle lanes that are all of 20ft. Its pathetic! Cars park in longer cycle lanes too etc. It is blatent tokenism. Unlike Austria which is a very cycle friendly country and makes the effort to keep cars and cycles apart. It is a realy joy cycling the roads, lanes and paths there.

Let's not talk about France ! I think we are the worse about cycling infrastructure and hypocrisy towards the cycling mode of transport.
Here in Poland, in my city at least, I am quite impressed; I have been living for 5 years there. When I came there was an old city with crappy socialist infrastructure in decrepitude, with no cycle path at all. Despite the urbanisn of the agglomeration was not convenient at all, they have made incredible investments to make it cycle-friendly, and when I see it today I think they did quite well. What a pity countries which are meant to be richer cannot make such effort..

I know. Cycling is just not in the consciousness of the Brit. We have sports personality of the year nominations. Yes Cav is there but no Wiggo or Steve Peat. Shocking they don't get the recognition they deserve.

Great to hear that a country has done good and made the effort when they have the opportunity rather than a feeble attempts here.

I thought France was a great cycling nation? Its their national sport too. I am surprised they haven't the infrastructure of other countries. I think that Holland is the best. But no hills!!!!

France is great for cycling in the sense that we have a wide superficy then low population density, beautiful countryside roads especially in the south half with hilly ones. BUT, talking about cycling inside the cities, and especially cycling to go to work, it's a disaster. Just like you described, the cars are parked all over the few timid attempts to make cycling tracks. Total unrespect of the cycler in the street of the big cities... :(
Yes, Poland can be proud of what they acheived (well, only in few cities, not all). I think due to their location in Europe they are trying to stick to the standards in Germany and Scandinavian countries (I've been once in Finland and been impressed too: just like holland, but they cover the wide distances !)
