More Dutchmen proving me wrong.....

Everywhere I turned in the Netherlands, I found one more example of how a bike really can be the only vehicle a person needs.  I guess this guy's wife had no problem saying, "Honey, drop the girlS (yes, plural) off at school on your way to work today, please!" So everyone climbed on and away they went..... as I stood there, in utter amazement, trying to focus my iPhone fast enough to snap a pic!

That is amazing! Biking really is a great way to get around and save the planet at the same time.

ahaha that's pretty insane! Biking seems to be huge in Belgium as well

It's true, those Dutch LOVE their bicycles!

I remember when I went for a long weekend to Amsterdam, at the local, big supermarkets, the 'parking lot' consisted of maybe five parking spots for cars, then just long rows of bike racks!

It does make them awfully green though, you have to give them that! ;)

At least everything is FLAT there. Makes it a bit easier.

Reminds me of how we have men piles up and squished in the backs of trucks here all the time. And kids with no car seats.
It is a cute picture though...

I've seen a lot of strange biking scenarios in Europe so far, but this one takes the cake! Great job on capturing the photo too btw!
