Dutch parents and kids on bikes in Amsterdam

(rain)

(or shine)

I should probably post these to Flickr instead, but then again why bother? Nobody goes there anymore...

This is a collection of Dutch parents and kids on bikes, all taken in Amsterdam except for the final film. Use and peruse them to your heart's content.

I guess the only thing I want to say about them is that these are completely normal here. The bikes with boxes up front, "bakfietsen" are about the equivalent of owning a luxury car, and cost upward of $2000.

(front and back)

 


 


 


(cheaper alternative)

(tandems also come in numerous variations)


 


 




 
(yes, some people wear helmets)
