Flickr Dad: It's My Kid In A Bakfiets Baby


Flickr user Hive carried a baby bakfiets home in a bakfiets. Then the baby put the baby holding the baby in the baby bakfiets. [note: it makes plenty of sense in Dutch.]

I love the idea of these bakfiets bikes: alternative to cars and just plain cool. But I can't imagine actually riding one (with a kid) around Philly. Maybe in Portland where everyone seems to be happy and nice.

Also, you could buy a perfectly nice, low-mileage used car for the price of a bakfiets. But sure, they're swell, and there's even a dealer here in Vermont. I'm thinking of driving there for a test ride, not buying one, and then driving back.

Perhaps, but the cost of gas, insurance, maintenance and parking just don't compare, and there are also the benefits for greater independence, fitness and the environment.
