040: Cargo bikes
Everyone knows that there are many bikes in the Netherlands. Many more bikes than people: Over 22 million bikes to little over 17 million Dutch. On average, they cycle about 1000 km per year, equal to almost 3 km per day. One out of four people uses the bike for going to their work. Therefore, many bike stops are needed for proper parking of the bicycles. Unfortunately, not all cyclists respect that, and prefer to park the bike as near as possible to their destinations: walls, pavements, shop windows. There are not only two-wheeled bikes, but there is also a small number of cargo bikes, in which you can transport children to the school, or groceries to the clients, or small furniture when you are moving. You can rent those cargo bikes. The photograph shows a location where the cargo bikes can be rented.
