When we were in Spain I was somehow surprised to see so little bikes compared to the Nordics. The climate should be more favourable to bike, but perhaps it is too hot in summer? Perhaps it also had to do with the fact that it was holidays but it was also explained to me that one big problem is that cars don't respect bikers in the traffic, so it doesn't feel safe to bike.

To finish off I thought I'd post some biking inspiration for you:
Video from Copenhagen, which is often called "the city of cyclists":
Copenhagen - City of Cyclists from Copenhagenize on Vimeo.
Our bikes on the porch:
Bird in bike-basket (pic taken at my Uni in Helsinki, somebody had obviously not used this bike for a while..)
Me biking in snow in Helsinki (not necessarily recommended unless you have bike-tires for snow).
This video is made by the company Holstee insired by their manifesto.
Do you bike a lot? What inspires you to keep on going?
