You can ride it if you like
It's got a basket
A bell that rings
And things to make it look good
I'd give it to you if I could ...."
Yes, i've got a new bike. The other one was too old and heavy and my bike is the one with the kid chair. So... you know, old bike + 3yrd old kid... it was heavy.
We like taking bike rides and stop in farms and buy fresh produce. For instance the asparagus with which we ate the bread in the post bellow, we bought in a farm as we were biking around on the wekend...
You can't live in The Netherlands and not have a bike. There are bike lanes almost everywhere so it is pretty safe, not to mention that as you take your course to learn to drive, future drivers are carefully instructed to look through every single mirror in the car (in an especific order and amount of times) to avoid crashing on a biker!
I admire dutch women whom you see biking with two kids, one in front and one on the back, and grocery bags hanging from the sides... wearing high heels... under the rain! Amazing. To me that is a balance act proper of a circus!
So, here a few bike pics I like from Flickr.
