Albert Cuypmarkt

Amsterdam Summer 2010

City of Bikes

As a baby reaches toddlerhood age in Amsterdam, they are placed in their own little seat, with their own little footrest right behind the handlebars. I have rarely witnessed an unhappy child accompanying his parent on their ride. In fact, the child often seems gleeful and quite content to be able to have such a view, their hair blowing freely in the wind. This early experience clearly shapes Dutch children’s balance, coordination, and comfort with biking themselves along the harried streets of Amsterdam.White, L.Kate.
