About "The Dutch and Their Bikes"

"The Dutch & Their Bikes; Scenes from a nation of cyclists" is the definitive photo guide to the world’s best bicycle culture.

This fascinating collection of almost 700 photos was created by American photographer and author Shirley Agudo, who succeeded to capture the essence of the Netherlands as the most cycling-friendly country in the world. In English, with hardback cover, dust-jacket and counting 352 pages, "The Dutch and Their Bikes" makes a great gift option for bike lovers!

Opinions about "The Dutch & Their Bikes"

The photographic gems of "The Dutch & Their Bikes" were greatly appreciated by representatives of cycling and the Netherlands. Have a look at what they had to say:

  • Aletta Koster, Director of the Dutch Cycling Embassy: "Shirley Agudo promotes Dutch cycling in a way that we cannot do with words. It’s art."
  • Kaspar Hanenbergh, cycling historian: "In my opinion, the Dutch are rather blind to their own cycling culture. Thanks to Shirley Agudo, that will change."
  • Eberhard van der Laan, Mayor of Amsterdam: "Amsterdam’s reputation as the world’s best cycling city is certainly true, and Shirley Agudo brings it all to life."
