Cycling below sea level? You can in the Netherlands

Cycling below sea level
The Netherlands have been fighting water for hundreds of years. Now there is a good understanding between the Netherlands and the ocean.

Dikes, Delta Works, canals and windmills all play a role in how the Netherlands is able to live below sea level.
