The biker and the pedestrians.

_MG_2337_1024You know, The Netherlands… That flat country, paradise for bikers… and a nightmare for pedestrians!!!!!

After some days in The Netherlands, my family and myself found that Dutch people have transformed a simple vehicle into a silent weapon of massive destruction!!!!

Those bicycles… without brakes, without ring, to go unnoticed through the streets.

Nobody tells you that, without notice, behind you, two thin wheels are running against you.

You don’t notice anything, maybe a clatter and the whir of a badly oiled chain. But you don’t become aware as the noise of your chat is louder.

Suddenly, you feel a presence at your back. Too late!!!

The front wheel has crossed between your legs, the handlebar is hitting your kidneys and, if you are unlucky and the bicycle is new, the focus is stuck in your…

Unknowingly, you try to find what happened. But the wheel, the handlebar and the light have dissapeared in a sea of killer bikes flooding the streets.

In the image, a group of wrathful pedestrians cornered a cyclist who tried to escape. As far as I know, the cyclist was able to survive the killing gazes of the walkers.

Just a joke to go with the image. In fact, I love to use my bicycle (like Queen). But, it’s real that I felt besieged by the bicycles in The Netherlands. To all my Dutch friends.
