Blogging from Amsterdam

“I am in Amsterdam now. Lots of bicycles. Will post photos when I return. They have parking lots for bikes. No sports/fitness bikes like in the US. Only utility bikes. They don’t lock the bikes to racks. They just lock the rear wheel in hopes someone doesn’t pick it up and walk off.No helmets either.

The transit system is so sophisticated that there are street lights for the bikes. Cyclists pull up to the light like a car, but in their own lane. The light changes, the light actually has a picture of a bicycle in it.

The weirdest bicycle moment was when we were eating dinner last night. A one legged man doubled on the back of his friends bike. He came down the street and greeted his friend. Then he jumped on the back of the bike. His friend took off with him and his crutches in tow on the rear rack.

More later…”

(PS. I added the picture)

Hey Tom – yup, I’d personally love to read more about deiesedvgn/r’s processes when approaching a project. Often times there’s great stories to tell; lessons learned, challenges along the way – that a screen shot can’t tell.And it’s not just those “Blah company was looking for a re-brand and we decided to give this a shot” descriptions, it’s the more personal, informal ones that are interesting to me. Thanks!
