Yes, many people travel by bike. To work, to go out, to go shopping etc. But only if the destination is close by. The advantage is that you don't have to search for a parking space (we have few) and that you'll not get stuck in a traffic jam (we have a lot). When it rains you can put on a raincoat, take the bus or wait till is stops raining.Linda 07 Jun 2007, 03:44 - Report
I am in Spain and I met a dutch he told me he really missed his bike (you could see sadness in his eyes then). He owns three bikes :0 Each time I talk to him he is like "in 3 weeks I am on my bike" [I belive dutch pple have two love stories, one with their partner and the other one with their bikes]Jeff 02 Jul 2007, 04:53 - Report
