“The foldable is great. I work in the theatre and I always go by bike. But I might meet up with a friend and they think it is a problem because they have a car and I have the bike.

Photographer’s notes: Did you notice the rubber sheath on the front of the frame? The Dahon foldable bike is new and he added the rubber to make it easier to carry the bike. And then, with the rear carrier, he can transport a friend with them simply standing on the carrier. This is such common sight in Holland – less so in Brussels. But then, some of the passenger images that are part of everyday life in the north are illegal in Belgium.
