    That's it! I'm moving :biggrin:

    Looks a lovely place to be on a bike :smile: Shame it was speeded up though - it looked pretty hectic at that speed but I suspect it's quite calm :smile:

    It's a lovely city to visit as well. There's a bike hire shop quite near to the station and that's by far the best way to see the place.

    For the average UK cyclist it would be absolutely scary

    I cycled in the rush hour in Utrecht in October - as a lumbering fully loaded tourist with not much idea where I was going and with a camera habit it was not actually frightening - disconcerting would be a better description - not being rear ended by a train of fast moving cyclists became the limit of my ambition - we in the UK are not ready for this - luckily there are calmer areas where they allow motorised traffic

    As an after thought - I read on the web that the day I was there that there was a hit and run by a cyclist on a cycle path - killed one man and badly injured his wife - abandoned bicycle and ran off

    My idea of hell - all those bike and not one decent one amongst them! Quite like that one bloke had taken a spare one along for the ride.

    Where's the lycra? They don't look like very serious cyclists.
     
  14. They love their traditionally-styled bikes in Holland don't they?!
    Looked nice, apart from them all being on the wrong side of the road that is xx(

    Nothing to do with commuting, but more fun and games from Utrecht
