I take it they are fond of bikes ;o) Some charming examples here Bill, but the central one takes the biscuit.
Bill Phillips: Or even the apple Mike. There were bikes everywhere you looked!

The middle one is a real stonker Bill.
Bill Phillips: She stopped to eat an apple while waiting for her dad!
Impressive collection of bikes in all shapes & sizes, Bill. The middle shot could stand on its own; charming.
Bill Phillips: It was nice seein this child with flowers on her bike. She was eating an apple!
A nice collage,Bill.
Bill Phillips: Cheers Frank
interesting visual report Bill
Bill Phillips: I am obliged to you sir
Fine collage Bill, is there even more bikes than one can see in Cambridge, and there are hundreds there.
Bill Phillips: They are everywhere. I suspect there are more bikes than people in the Netherlands
When it is as flat as the Netherlands, it's better than driving a car!
Bill Phillips: It is really. Even I would ride a bike here!

In A'dam there are very many bicycles. A lovely postcard.
Bill Phillips: They are everywhere. I think the Dutch can ride a bike before they can walk
A beautiful and typical collage Bill!
Bill Phillips: You could spend forever photographing bicycles in the Netherlands richard grin
Indeed, I imagine that they breed quite freely in the Netherlands. Makes an interesting subject.
Bill Phillips: They are like a plague

Perhaps they have much better facilities for bikes than we did in the UK? Well, it would be difficult to have worse... I like the flower bike top left.
Bill Phillips: Bikes have right of way.
Cute little girl on tip-toes, to reach the ground! Very nice collage Bill smile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Martin
Just one would of been to much.
Bill Phillips: I hope you visit the Netherlands and get run over by a bike

Lovely collage smile Yeah I recall being amazed at the number of bikes around when I visited. The bike stands are a sight to behold!
Bill Phillips: They are indeed Noa. How people ever find their bikes! Perhaps that is why some of them are painted in distinctive colours grin
