Thursday Video - Cycling with Babies and Toddlers in the Netherlands

This mom has her hands full
This week's video is a compilation of short clips showing Dutch cyclists with their kids. While I think it's wonderful that they take their kids cycling, I can't get over the fact that they don't wear helmets. I didn't see a single person, adult or child, wearing a helmet in this video. I had a couple friends who biked over there in the 1980s. They said the Dutch looked at them in amazement because they wore helmets. One said a young boy walked by him and just kept staring at his helmet, eventually walking into a parking meter. I thought things would have changed by now, but apparently not. Enjoy the video below:
