I've been to Oslo.

I would say that even in Norway, having devoted infrastructure for cyclists is the key element. Its not that Norwegian drivers are inherently better or nicer.

So in downtown Oslo, and throughout the town, there is dedicated bike infrastructure to take you off of the main roads, many of which are still car-centric. It's just that there are so many alternatives that you just don't see cyclists taking those routes.

When we rode out of town to the Viking museum and the infrastructure disappeared - I was riding with my then 10 year-old - we were consigned to road riding on two-laners and it was just as bad as cycling anywhere else.
