The Dutch know bike design, and the bakfiets is a brilliant, smooth ride. Both dogs and kids love being up front, and going for a ride. It seems like an odd concept for many North Americans, we usually put our children in a trailer, on the back of your bicycle. But having them upfront, means you can chat easily, you see them at all times, you can feed them while riding, and they have an incredible vantage point during the ride! This is not just a bicycle, it is a pedal powered vehicle.
