I Hate Cargo Bikes

Via Bakfiets.co.uk, via the Workcycles group on Facebook, a video report by Radio Netherlands on the popularity and dislikes of bakfietsen in the Netherlands.

Henry’s response to a group member:

There’s no movement against bakfietsen; There’s just always somebody with a superior attitude. Bakfietsen have gone from work vehicle to hippy and squatter transport to über-hip fashion for young families to yuppie minivan to “it’s just plain old practical so I ride one’ in the last couple decades.

Always practical, always opting for convenience. Yes, the Dutch are pretty boring and predictable that way. Well, most of them.
