The Bike Shop Closes and My Bike Falls Apart

The Bike Shop Closes and My Bike Falls Apart

Well.. OK, not really. But it was impeccable timing on the part of my Omafiets. She’s  a year old now and I guess it was time to be feisty.  Lets also be honest though – I am hard on my bike.  I’m not a small rider – I’m 6ft tall and built like the Midwestern […]

Cargo Bike Weekend: A Case of Wine & A Dutch Bike Test Ride

Dutch and Dutch-Style Bikes Everywhere I Look!

When I walked out of my office for lunch last week, I walked by a number of Dutch and Dutch-like bikes parked around the neighborhood that I’d never seen before. And there wasn’t a bike event going on that I was aware of either. Amid the 20-30 bikes that were parked up and down the […]

A New and Improved Dutch Bike Reference Page

Just letting everyone know that I spent some time over the weekend updating the Dutch Bikes page on this blog.  Since I started this blog last year, I’ve met a lot of other bike bloggers who write about Dutch bikes (which I wrote about in an earlier post) and learned a little more about the bikes […]
