The Dutch have no fear! Cycling on the snow…. I tried it and it’s SCARY!

Holland (The Netherlands) has been hit with masses of snow twice in the last 2 weeks. I love it when the snow starts….as long as I don’t have any travel plans to cope with. As an Englishman in The Netherlands, I have come to the conclusion that the Dutch are far better at coping with this winter weather than the English.

I have seen people cycling about as though it is just any other day! Thin tyres on snow? You gotta be kidding. These people are brave! I tried it…Let’s say, not too successfully. You have to go fast and keep up your speed. If you slow down then you’re likely to fall.

Check out the pictures.

Brave or mad?

    • It is definately an experience that you won’t forget. It’s actually easier to cycle on snow rather than the slush. Most of the Dutch (and probably most of the expats living here) have no choice. It’s cycling or walking!
