The Circle City Bicycles blog contains info on bicycles, cycling events, pro racing, bicycle touring, and just about anything else cycling related. Since our bike shop is located in Indianapolis, we focus on biking in the Midwest, but cycling fans anywhere in the world should find this blog interesting. We try to post daily Monday through Friday, but we occasionally miss a day. Each Friday we try to have an interesting bicycle related photo.
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:
