Dutch Bicycle Photos We Love

We’re amassing quite a collection of bicycle photos from Holland.

Here are a few of our favourites. Top of the list is this shot Andrew got of a little girl, riding in a Bakfiets (literally ‘basket bicycle’) with her father, just around the corner from our home.

On a day trip to Amsterdam, we spotted this bike, which lives up to its name.


This is the kind of Christmas tree we plan to have one day!

Here’s a very typical Dutch bike, parked against someone’s home.

One way to deter people from stealing your bicycle is to scratch your name into the frame!
