We all know that the Dutch spend a lot of time on their bicycles, which they also happen to own a lot of. (See my previous post on the importance of bicycles in Dutch life.)
It’s amusing to observe the variety of things Dutch people can and will do while on two wheels. Here’s my friend, with her toddler in tow, withdrawing money from the cash point. No need to get off the bicycle!
I’ve also seen people talking on the phone or sending text messages while on their bicycle; a couple kissing on their bicycles (they had, at least, come to a stop before doing so); and an entire family on a bicycle, with their multiple children piled into a little trailer attached to the bike.
When it comes to life on a bicycle, the Dutch know no limit!
