Weekend Cycling in the Netherlands

One of the first weekends of 2010 with lovely weather brought out all the cyclists in the Netherlands. Young, old, racers, whole families, groups of friends and grandparents with grandchildren. We see children in a child’s seat on (grand)mother’s bike but we can see a lot of children on their own mini-bicycles too. Sometimes gently pushed by a parent.

It seems the Dutch just had to cycle at the free Pentecost weekend.

Note the difference of the bikes compared to the Dutch commuting bicycles. In the weekend the Dutch are out and about on their better bicycles with gears and handle bar brakes. Not everyone uses an upright bike either. And we even see some lycra and a few helmets.
