All about cycling in the Netherlands
After a wet and cold September, we’ve experienced an incredibly warm mid-October. For this ‘short-post’ week I decided to put my camera right next to a cycle path in ’s-Hertogenbosch last Saturday and to simply record some random people cycling past.
This is the time of year that quite a lot of people struggle to decide what to wear. You see people in shorts right next to people in wool scarves and winter coats. With temperatures reaching 23 degrees Celsius* the ones in shorts seem to have had the better outfit, at least during the day.
That it really is autumn is clear from the brown leaves on the trees and already on the edges of the cycle path. The long shadows and the typical end-of-the-year light are also a dead giveaway that summer is indeed over. Of course, in the Netherlands that doesn’t mean the cycling season is coming to an end. The Dutch cycle on all through the wet autumn days that I’m sure we’ll also get and through winter as well. But we’re not there quite yet. First, we thoroughly enjoyed our beautiful sunny and exceptionally warm autumn days.
