Bikes and the Netherlands. They go together like travel and passports – regularly used, get you from a to b and, unfortunately, sometimes lost or stolen. In a country that has more than 13 million bikes and a population of approximately 16.5 million people there are bound to be some bike thefts. And that’s why children in the Netherlands learn the importance of locking up their bike at an early age – ideally to something that is unlikely to move, like a lamppost.
