It’s Friday and it has been a while since we’ve had a photo of the day so……well why not today? Can’t think of a reason so….what is it?
Good question. The photo of the day comes straight from the Netherlands where I recently spent about three weeks trying to eat as much chocolate sprinkles for breakfast as I could and as much cheese for lunch as I could. Mission accomplished.
I also discovered why the Dutch are not all 500 pounds on a diet that starts with chocolate for breakfast: biking. Yes it’s cliche and everyone knows about the bikes in Amsterdam, but have you seen the way they leave their bikes?
Well, that brings us to the photo of the day: a bike rack. Have you ever seen one like this before? Me neither, which is why I had to take a pic! These weird contraptions hold the bike’s wheels and help keep down the chaos that these bicycles could create in a country where 86% of the population owns one!
Want some crazier numbers? Well there are about 16 million bicycles in Holland and 1.3 million new ones are sold each year. That is more bicycles than inhabitants!
No wonder I got dirty looks for walking everywhere. Common pedestrian!
