    Benefits of Bicycling

You can enjoy biking benefits whether you're 8 or 80. You can ride your bike to work and save money. By opting for two wheels instead of four you're saving the environment. In a word, bikes are 'awesome.' Especially Dutch Bikes.  Let's take a look at more of those bicycling benefits:

  • Bikes in Amsterdam make people happier

    Seeing all the Dutch bikes in Amsterdam some 3 years ago really sparked our love for this particular bicycle type. As is the stereotype, the place is loaded with bicycles. People get around by bike more then by car. In fact an astounding  800,000 or 63% of Amsterdammers commute by bicycle on a daily basis, compared to Portland's 7%. Off course this isn't an apples to apples comparison as the states are a GIANT country and we're comparing that to one city with a high saturation of cycling. Still, it's interesting to understand that this kind of bicycle commuting is possible and more efficient in high population urban centers.

  • Biking around Lake Casitas in Ojai


    For our next adventure, my boyfriend and I took our Peace Dutch bikes and our little doxie to Lake Casitas in Ojai, California. It was a really warm day and he was enjoying the breeze made by our riding. We stopped several times for water breaks for our little guy! The lake itself is a no-contact lake because it is used as a source for drinking water, so if you're looking for a swimming spot to cool off, this is not the place for you.  We did see some kayakers, so you can get pretty close to the water, but swimming is forbidden with a substantial fine!
