Next Bikes were being lined up by the Bridge of Remembrance when we walked by this morning.
I’d never seen so many of them all together, and when I inquired was told they were to be used by the visiting Dutch trade delegation, who would cycle to New Regent Street. As bikes are a common form of transport in the Netherlands the representatives of the 60 Dutch companies are likely to be experienced cyclists. While the business people are cycling round the central city the Dutch King and Queen will be visiting Willowbank Wildlife Reserve. There was a tram waiting in New Regent Street to take the trade delegation on a tour after their cycle ride.
“There won’t be time to take a hike
but they’ll see lots from their Next Bike.”
