One of the big differences living over here is how much we bike compared to back home (never back home, all the time here). Practically every time we would have jumped in a car back home we jump on our bikes here. Going to work, shopping, visiting friends, is all done on the bike.
The Dutch have made it their way of living. Practically every street has a bike path and anywhere you would like to go in the country you can get to by bike. The bikes have the right of way, then pedestrians, and then cars.
Myself and a co-worker, two members of our five member biker gang that occasionally ride to work together (that is supposed to be a doorag on my head NOT MY IDEA).
Our commute to work is about 5 miles (the same distance as Viola Gibson to Bowman Woods) and takes us anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes.
