Hackney Cyclist
Living and cycling in Hackney since 2003, I want Hackney to be as safe and comfortable for me and my daughter to cycle here as it is in the Netherlands

I think the hero 8 has really good stabilisation for handlebar mounting now, at least from what I've seen

Teenagers able to cycle for miles and miles alongside each other other, chatting away alongside rural main roads

It baffles me that this somehow something special and remarkable. This is just normal for me.

That is what a policeman on a bike told me last year so I've gone with it ;)

And back out. Shopping centres safe for kids to cycle to, just as it is for them to walk or get the bus to

On the bright side I really like that freedom of movement, Schengen area thing they've got going on over here. Where can we sign up to it?

That's what I thought. Do the town planners not cross over the border sometimes and think "this is quite good isn't it? Maybe we should just copy this?"

Good cycling conditions are not about geography, culture, climate or any of that nonsense, its political decisions, 100%

I was intending to cycle to the nearest German town for a beer but gave up after less than a kilometre and headed back to the Netherlands. Worse cycling infrastructure than anything I've seen in hundreds of kilometers cycling in NL this week

Enschede is about 3km from Germany so only a 10 minute cycle away. As soon as I crossed the border the change in cycling infrastructure was remarkable

Well thankfully the Netherlands has a network of safe cycle routes like the one I filmed so there is no need for children to wear helmets, like there may be in countries where you have to mix with lorries 👍
