Oh Bicycles....

One of my favourite things about the Netherlands is the cycling culture. I already miss being able to ride my bicycle everywhere! (See this post). I shall always adore the memories of cycling to the beach, loading my groceries onto my bike, speeding around the cobbled side streets of my old University town and saying a prayer as I slid through the snow during the cold winter. One of the first Dutchie skills I had to acquire when I arrived at University was the nack of jumping on the back of a moving bike in a smooth manner......it took a few goes before I got it down. I loved catching rides on the backs of bicycles, navigating my way back after a night out with tipsy friends....and well....there is nothing sweeter than riding your bicycle and holding hands with a cute boy whilst he rides beside you. Holland - I miss you. I have been pinning bicycles ever since returning to the UK. Here are some favourites.

What a gorgeous post! I have only heard about how easy it is to get to everything you need by bicycle across the pond. American cities were really not made for them...which is sad. I really want to get bicycles to do more without a car...my legs would look better if I did more with a bicycle than a car. :)

***Stopping by from the hop, have a great day!
