Bike Transport in Switzerland and Austria

A pleasantly surprised American cyclist commenting on bike infrastructure in Switzerland and Austria, in particular Basel and Innsbruck, two European cities that aren’t particularly big (166k and 120k respectively), and which do have some weather and topography, not so different from Boulder.  Basel’s bike mode share is 17%, about double Boulder’s, and their bike infrastructure is fantastic.  If we get another 9% of our trips by bike, can we have that too please?  Or maybe the causality is the other way around.
