Dutch people love bikes – ww w/linky

The first thing you will realize if you come to The Netherlands is that Dutch people love bikes. No matters the age, I’ve seen 80 year old ladies biking. When we went to Terschelling Liam was just 4 weeks old and the we rented bikes to go around the island. Paul got a “bakfiets” so he could put Liam inside, and my sister and I rented a electric tandem so I didn’t have to actually bike 😛

En Holanda lo primero que te llamará la atención es la cantidad de bicis que hay, a los holandeses les encanta montar en bici! No importa la edad, he llegado a ver a ancinas montando en bici. Cuando estuvimos es Terschelling Liam sólo tenía 4 semanas pero aún así alquilamos bicis para recorrer la isla. Paul alquiló una “bakfiets” para poder llevar a Liam y mi hermana y yo un tandem eléctrico, para no tener que pedalear mucho 😛


I love the bakfiets, you can carry a baby in a maxicosi or later up to four children. We’ll definitely get one!

Me encantan las bakfiets, en ellas puedes llevar el maxicosi o hasta cuatro niños sin que se mojen. Yo lo tengo claro, nos compraremos una!


If you think we were crazy putting a maxicosi/baby in a bike, you should visit a dutch ikea, i’ve seen people carrying their furniture in the bike, even a wash machine!! Watch this video!!

Si te parece que llevar un maxicosi/bebé en una bici es de locos, deberías de ir a un Ikea en Holanda, la gente va a comprar muebles en bici. Bueno y hasta lavadoras! A ver que os parece el video.

What is the weird thing you have seen on a bike? where?

Qué es lo más raro que has visto en una bici? dónde?

    1. Yes, it’s very practical. You can carry anything and the plastic tent can be removed too.

    1. Sobre todo porque con todo lo que llueve aquí no es muy recomendable llevar a los niños en una silla en la bici

  1. We were not in the Netherlands long as Haarlem was a port on a cruise ship and we were so late, we only got about an hour at port. It was the bicycles that really struck me. Like you said, they were every where, ridden by everyone. I like the bicycle with the place for the baby.
