Obama & The Bakfiets

I've been searching for a new bike and came across this! Hahahah, gotta' love the bakfiets!

Oh, and for a bakfiets success story update I successfully navigated the streets of Amsterdam with four (yes, four!) children and groceries! Yay me! The more I ride it, the more I love the bakfiets. It can be scary and wobbly at times but it's just so fun to ride around carry copious amounts of things. I think the bakfiets system really only works in a city like Amsterdam where life and transport are based on biking. I couldn't imagine using this and having to actually dodge all the other traffic. Going back to a place without a fully functional bike lifestyle system just can't happen because now I can't imagine things any other way.
