How The Dutch Pick Up The Ladies

Written by Boston Biker on Jan 30

How pimp is that?! This would work regardless of the gender of the rider/driver. Someday Boston, someday you will be just like this.

Thanks for the tip Kallie!

    FYI, this is technically illegal in MA. Not to say you can’t do it, but be warned.

    Unfortunately, our overbearing bike laws here make this illegal. There are all sorts of ridiculous nannyish laws laws, like how high the handlebars can be.

    Also: the Dutch were practically born cycling; try this with your average American biker rider, and yo’

    When visiting Amsterdam I watched in amazement on several occasions at Amsterdamer’s casualness in bike handling.

    My favorite was when a young woman came out of a shop talking on her phone, unlocked her bike with her free hand, stepped on the wrong pedal, started the bike going, sat on the saddle, switched feet onto the correct pedals and rode away (on cobblestones) still talking on her phone. It happened so quickly and effortlessly, it stunned me.

    Actually B, it’s not that hard- I’ve done it both as rider and as “engine”
    -although perhaps not as gracefully as the lady in the video. You need a good heavy city bike and a heavy duty rack though. Don’t try it with a wimpy pleschner.
    I’ve done it on my DL-1 with the dutch Steco rack a couple of times.
