All about cycling in the Netherlands
The Dutch OV-Fiets, the “public transport bicycle” is a very successful system of rental bikes. They shipped 400 of their bikes to the Olympic Village in Vancouver. The bikes are meant for the Dutch athletes to use as a means of transport. Just like they would at home.
Almost 600 people in Richmond showed up for a testride. A lot of the people had Dutch roots as many Dutch emigrated to Canada in the past.
The Dutch Prime Minister came to hand over the bikes officially. When he made a test ride too, he forgot one important difference to using your bike in the Netherlands: in Vancouver bicycle helmets are mandatory!
