The Netherlands has a huge advantage with its cycling infrastructure, unfortunately we also get loads of rain which keeps me indoors when it gets too bad. :(

Looks like a sweet ride! Always a joy to see the Spark spreading around the globe, but ESPECIALLY so as my grandfather is from the Netherlands and I've been so impressed with the cycling infrastructure you've developed in your country. I would LOVE to visit someday...duly added to my Bucket List! :-)

Hi everyone! I'm a 25 year old car enthusiast from The Netherlands.

My car means everything to me, but since pushing the pedals of my Modded Corolla in a rhythmic motion doesn't work very well in terms of fitness, I bought a bike to keep up my cardio schedule. :)

The bike is pretty much a mix between a city bike and a mountain bike.
It has huge tires and a large frame so it looks like a mountain bike,
but the tires are definitely not built to go off-road.
I try to ride 15 to 20 kilometers (9 to 12 miles) a week, almost all of that is cardio related.

Here's a picture of my bike, the Altra Escape.

Just like my car, it's a "Modded Escape", changes so far:
New (smaller) sports saddle.
Bottle cage/holder.

So far I've got 243 kilometers (150 miles) on my tracker.
Oh, and I bought my bike only just over two months ago. ;)
