Photographer's Note

In Holland cycling is part and parcel of daily life. No wonder, because Holland's 16 million people own approximately 13 million bicycles. The Dutch use their bicycles as a mean of transportation rather than a recreational sport. The bike is used for everything: for grocery shopping, to commute to work, school or university, and so on, and so on. Hollands moderate climate, short distances and flat roads all serve to make the bicycle a logical means of transportation. Add to this about 17,000 kilometers of specially designated bicycle paths and routes and you will understand why cycling in Holland is not only practical, but also quite enjoyable. Especially if you can negotiate at least a temporary agreement with the wind...;)))

The photo was made last Saturday in the centre of Amsterdam, undoubtedly the most "cycling" city in the Netherlands. The world is really seen there through bicycle wheels...
