This pic does not show all there is. To the left at least another 50m and to the right another 40m perhaps. (metres that is, not miles )
One would have to use a 10mm lens and then stitch to get it all in.

They are a right old pain in the derrière.

These are ready for “re cycling”

Thanks for answering.

Hi Uncle
Many thanks
It is a common sight in Holland, particularly in the main cities at railway stations and markets.

As a kid and an adult riding only in neighborhoods the helmets make me nuts. I'd love statistics on bike safety in residential areas where the majority of children and casual riders ride. I suspect where they are needed are when there are more significant speeds and congestion.

I don't see any letters, numbers - anything you can write down to make it easier to find it again - and as tightly packed as they are.....
The Dutch have a reputation for being orderly, but I don't see it here.

Hi Uncle
Thanks for the comment and a good one it is too.

Here in Australia there is a culture of competitiveness and as a consequence it seems every rider (maybe not every, but a lot) is out on a time trial, often dressed in Lycra. Helmets ? Definitely !
In Holland, as in many other countries, people ride on what is known as upright bikes with shopping baskets installed in front of the handle bars and chain guards. In Australia you wouldn't want to be seen with one of those, not cool. Bikes have to have at least 6 gears if not more and disk brakes front and back shows you have arrived in this world. With these upright's , well, you sit upright and move along at a speed not much greater than jogging speed. (Often slower)
In Japan they even ride on footpaths without any problem. They do their daily errands, go shopping or go to work that way and when it rains they hold an umbrella with one hand. I have seen it many times in fact have done it in Japan several times myself. Helmet ? Not required.
