I'm always being told that people won't cycle where it's hilly, and Switzerland is a pretty hilly country, so does anybody actually cycle there? Well, yes. In fact, there are several cities with a higher percentage of people who cycle than any city in North America.
In this video, I visit Basel, Bern, Zürich, as well as one other lesser-known cycling city, to see exactly what it's like for people cycling in Switzerland.
