  • * Region is used for France; Prefecture is used for Japan; Province used for Spain; Region used for Finland.
  • Population taken from Wikipedia pages (no survey has a consistent month or year)
  • I only consider what Americans typically call “off-street trails” when that bikeway parallels a street without a bikeway (for example, the Hudson River Greenway in New York City).
  • Every city in the Netherlands has protected bike lanes.
  • Every city in Denmark has protected bike lanes.
  • Most cities in Japan have protected bike lanes.
