I visit the Netherlands a lot for work. It's been a dream of mine to actually have some time to ride there. Europe in itself has lots of great cycling locations, but the Netherlands has the perfect culture for biking. Although there are not a lot of hills, there is plenty of adventure.

Just keep MOVING!!! Linda in Cleveland, OH

I would love flat, but how's the wind? (It's really windy here. I keep reminding myself it's making me stronger, and occasionally it is at my back.)

Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.

You'd probably love it in the Netherlands! The Dutch love cycling and with their country being so flat, it's literally made for cycling. They have lots of bike paths everywhere and their culture and infrastructure is generally very convenient for cyclists.

Stephanie is losing it! :)

These are awesome! I live in Germany and we also have some very similar bikes.
I was considering buying one but changed my mind because there's no way I'm going to drop 2,500 euros on that (almost $ 3,500). Unfortunately, it's not that easy to find a used one in good condition around here.

Leave it to the Dutch...they keep innovating & integrating cycling so nicely into their culture!

"The English term cargo bike has a strong and obvious connection to freight, with that word cargo. The Dutch word bakfiets is more neutral and literally means ‘box bike’. That makes it perfectly normal for the Dutch to transport not only cargo in these box bikes, but mainly their children."
