Everyone in the Netherlands loves their bike.
Shirley Agudo, an American photographer and writer, has been living in the Netherlands for years and is fascinated by "the Netherlanders" and their bikes. She is so fascinated that she has been taking pictures of the Dutch bike culture for more than 10 years and has now even published her book 'The Dutch and Their Bikes'. She even claims that Dutch children might possibly learn to ride a bike before they learn how to walk and noted that cycling in the Netherlands is a fast, cheap, healthy ,and environment-friendly way to go from point A to B. And that Dutch infrastructure is completely fitted to this cycling culture.
Work horse or podium animal
Shirley states that the bike is a work horse to the Dutch, that is used daily to go to school, work, gym, and even the grocery store. But it's also a way of living: the baker with his freight bicycle filled with kids, being trendy on a colorful bike without brakes, the TH-student on a recumbent, and the youth on the grandma bicycle.
Agudo doesn't just show you the reality of the Dutch bicycle culture in her book 'The Dutch and Their Bikes', she also talks about how Dutch bicycle designers gain international fame with their trendy modls (like the VanMoof, Spiked and Bough Bikes). In large international cities like Paris, London, and New York the bike is also getting more and more popular thanks to it being fast, healthy, and environment friendly. They also would like more bikes than cars.
The book 'The Dutch and Their Bikes' contains 352 pages, has a hard cover, and is 23,5 x 18,7 x 3,2 cm (l x w x d) in size.
