This was by far the biggest bike I saw in Holland this weekend that did not involve a keg of beer. [After seeing our fifth or sixth beerfiets, we decided they're the perfect solution for keeping drunk, foreign hooligans together--and away from any one Dutchman's particular place of business. Brilliant.]
Anyway, on to the familyfiets, which is actually called a Kindertandem: seating for five, pedals for two, saddlebags for everyone, it's just crazy. Well, no. What's crazy is that it's not even the biggest Kindertandem the Amsterdam fabricator, Onderwater Fietsenmaker, makes: there's a Kindertandem XL with three sets of pedals, too.
Those are Bobike seats and a set of Clarijscover saddlebags. This shot was early in the morning, but by the end of the day, I realized that vinyl canvas saddlebags were more common in Holland than chocolate waffles and guys six inches taller than me.
