Contrary to popular belief, hospitals treat hundreds of non-emergency patients each day, for whom cycling would be much easier than walking, driving, or public transport. This is the patient bicycle parking at Delft General Hospital on a Friday morning. The staff park elsewhere.
Compare and contrast with @NHS_Lothian Edinburgh Royal Infirmary - great cycle paths to the hospital but bike parking haphazard, not signed, not prominent and not enough of it - easy to fix!

Close-passed on single lane roadworks on way to Waverley by woman driver who then stopped, got out, wagged her finger in my face, said I ‘wobbled’ and shouldn’t be on road if I ‘couldn’t go a bike’ - so sick of this dangerous entitlement egged on by commentators and media
