    What really caught me eye was how slender all the people on the bikes were compared to the typical lardy Britishers.

    Innit though, on holiday in Italy in a predominantly Italian resort a couple of years ago the missus and I felt like relative bloaters on the beach. I’m 1.86m (6’1) and 80ish kg (about 13st) and the missus is 5’8 and about 9.5 stone. We kind of got used to the people over there and when we flew back to Stansted most people just seemed kinda fat and bloaty.

    Rather more elegant ice-induced dismounts than the one I did in front of a pair of middle aged dog walkers on Sunday.

    And it’s true – the Dutch are more svelte, but mainly because they’re all 10 feet tall.

    Because they didn’t have a generation of young people and hence the gene pool wiped out in the 1st and 2nd world war, so i read somewhere….maybe….

    It’s those silly big wheels and daft handlebars they are all riding with that is causing it. Good job none of them were wearing helmets else there would have been fatalities if some of the people off here are to be believed…

    nah… the British were short before the first world war, Churchill noted it and started some action to improve diets during WW1

    They have failed to observe the correct STW protocols: full body armour + skills training day + lengthy thread on weighting the outside pedal.

    Surely they should be using the inside edge of the pavement as a berm??

    Part of me thinks they deserve it for riding the bikes they have. God, dutch bikes are awful.

    A Dutch colleague who I sat next to for a few years was very proud of the tallness of his countryfolk – all due to diet and exercise he reckoned. And having spent a fair time working there, not wrong.

    Wow that bend outside my house is dangerous I should:-

    1. Grit it before anyone gets hurt
    2. Film people getting hurt

    Having dated a Dutch Girl lately i can confirm there slimness 😮
    There was some good saves there… 😮
    Wonder if one of them involved on that corner see`s this film and goes back and puts in the film makers window 😆

    There bikes are awful basic because they are just transport,
    so reliability and function over looks 😉
