Hi Richard,

Thanks for the message! I am enjoying a day off from work over looking the beautiful beach in Maroubra. The only other place I'd love to be is in Holland on a bike! I guess that's why you like it there too. ;)

I enjoy reading your blog posts.... it is one of life's great pleasures cycling in The Netherlands. In fact, I would go as far to say it should be considered a modern wonder of the world. Imagine if all the bikes in Holland were replaced with cars and buses. It would be horrible. It goes to show how the humble bicycle can be such a fantastic tool for the World. Now all we have to do is convince the people here too!

Gazelle is going well. Every day we make progess educating people on the different types of bikes you can use and obviously people here are not very educated on European style city bikes. Having said that, we will sell more bikes this year than last and everybody who buys one becomes a big fan....word of mouth is a big one for us. I noticed you have an old Gazelle. The old ones have a lot of character!

I am organising a Dutch Bicycle Study Tour for the locals here so if you are in Amsterdam while we are there it would great to catch up. Have a look here - http://www.gazellebicycles.com.au/component/content/248.html?task=view

All the best and catch you next time,

Paul.
