Remembering my training wheels

Are you a bike person?

“I come from Amsterdam. Of course. I learned how to ride from my father and, without extra wheels, I could ride since I was two years old.”

Photographer’s notes: I saw this city cruiser glide past, oozing comfort, and set off in a chase. It is one of those luxurious bikes that can carry weight, with baskets and backpacks and panniers. Speed is definitely not the driving force – but that seems to be the Dutch way. Comfort over everything. And a bit of style never hurts.
