After seven years of no real growth, the Netherlands is finally poised to outperform the euro zone's lackluster economy, with rebounding home prices driving a broadly-based consumer spending revival.

A man holds onto his lit-up bike as police patrol a protest at Fori Imperiali street, during the ceremony to inaugurate a scheme that bans private vehicles on it, in Rome August 3, 2013. The protesters were rallying against what they said was "Rome's garbage dump near Divino Amore Sanctuary". A busy road that cuts through Rome's ancient forum to the Colosseum was blocked to private traffic on Saturday, in the first stage of a plan to pedestrianise the area that has angered some locals but which the mayor says is of global importance.

A man rides a bicycle past a Barclays bank in London August 5, 2010. Barclays Plc's half-year profit rose 44 percent as bad loans dropped sharply and it made a big accounting gain on its own debt, offsetting a second-quarter slowdown at its investment bank. Barclays shares dipped 2 percent as analysts said the investment bank performance was resilient but uninspiring, costs rose faster than expected and Spanish bad debts remain a worry.

A fleet of 6,000 bicycles for hire will hit the streets of central London on Friday when the city's mayor Boris Johnson launches a scheme intended to fuel a cycling revolution in the congested capital. The initiative, which follows similar projects in cities including Paris and Montreal, aims to ease overcrowding on London's commuter network, with 400 bicycle "docking stations" from Notting Hill in the west to the Tower of London in the east.
