BIKES IN HOLLAND





There are so many ways of thinking, doing and living that we can learn from other cultures. I notice in Holland there are a lot of things I want to bring back with me. Bikes are a big one, everyone bikes. Young, old, nothing to carry, lots to carry, post deliveries and police. They ride with no helmets, I suspect because the roads were made with them in mind, and it's just a part of their life styles. The dutch seem so civilized in a lot of different ways.

Hi Molly,

I'm a lurker on your blog and finally have something to share. I am a bakfiet rider in SF. A little bit of Dutch along the Embarcadero:
