The Dutch Way of Moving

People in the Netherlands use bicycle a lot. They use uncommon forms of bicycle for transporting them self or goods. Most popular of  them are called the “oma fiets” or grandmothers bicycle with large diameter wheels and back pedal brake. With this feature they can cycle in a very comfortable way. Transporting goods can be quite unconventional for the unfamiliar person. Seeing a cyclist using a helmet in the Netherlands is a rarity and there are no laws enforcing the use of one either. The Netherlands is relatively flat, so an average cyclist will face no difficulties cycling in this country but there are other elements to be endured such as the formidable Dutch weather. This land is famous for its cycle tracks and it is possible to get to any place in the Netherlands entirely via cycle tracks, but cycle track is not always available in every city. So drivers have to concur with cyclist.  Dutch cyclists however can be more aggressive than car or bus drivers, especially bus drivers has to fight with those cyclist and some are real street acrobats as you can see from some of the pictures below!  There are special bike parks at the central station and these can take a lot of bicycles.

    Sebuah contoh yang baik, bagaimana sebuah pesan dikemas dan disampaikan kepada khalayak, agar terjadinya sebuah perubahan, atau minimal adanya penambahan pengetahuan bagi publik. Dan elemen-elemen visual sekedar untuk menguatkan pesan itu.

    Ini esai foto yang bagus. Salute!

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Terima kasih Ronald telah menyempatkan diri untuk mengunjungi dan meninggalkan komentar yang dapat dijadikan bahan renungan bagi semua. Benar pendapatnya, bahwa membawa sesuatu kepermukaan agar terjadi perubahan dalam pemikiran dalam kehidupan bagus adanya.

    How’s going Jos and Sari?

    I enjoy your photos, thank you!
    Bicycle is one of important and convenience transportation way in my hometown also.
    Actually, there is enough place to park it , so we can see the same scene of first photo on your blog.

    I love your photo’s tone and story, could you keep telling me when you update your blog?

    best regard
    Atsushi

    • Jos Runarka Says:

    Wow they are all so complitely great…..love them all…and thanks for sharing!!!
    We all should learn from the Dutch people to use bicycle much more…healthy for us and for the inviroment as well….!!!!!

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Dear Tove,

      thank you for your comment and visit. We are happy you like them. Yes, a rethink in how we work, move should have a great impact to our environment. Do you know, that in The Netherlands people are suffering from daily traffic jam. It is a crowded land.

    Also Milan cry for a greater number of paths. Every day I use bike and it is not always safe. We have to learn…….
    Very good photos, I like it so much
    marinella

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Dear Marinella,

      using bicycle in our home country is also not safe. There are no special cycle track so it is dangerous to use bicycle on the street of Jakarta.
      We are pleased you like our images. Thank you!

  9. Carlos Codina Says:

    Wikipedia: A bicycle, also known as a bike, push bike or cycle, is a pedal-driven, human-powered, single-track vehicle, having two wheels attached to a frame, one behind the other. A person who rides a bicycle is called a cyclist or a bicyclist.
    Simply and beautiful, the meaning from bicycle and the photos from this post. I can picture my self how a lot of people looking these photos can bring to their minds a lot of good memories,.. black and white distributed dots…

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Dear Carlos,

      thanks for the information. Why good memories? People should use more and more bicycle. It is good for the environment and for their own health. We sit minimum 8 hours at work so it is good to have some sport 🙂

  13. Peter Bouman Says:

    Great photo’s indeed, Jos! Thanks of looking through your eyes. Bicycling is now looking so special for me, though I’m doing it every day. Sometimes I’m thinking that Dutch mentality is for a big part influenced by bicycling, because you have so much more interaction with pedestrians and other bikers than in a car…

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Dear Peter,

      thank you for leaving your impressions and thought on about our posting. We should hunt together if you want someday..

  15. Araakii Says:

    Such a bike friendly city! I wish my city was like that. There are a lot of hills in Seattle so biking is pretty tough. And in general Europe is much friendlier than the US.

    I like the photo with the girl holding an umbrella.

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Thank you Araakii,

      I would say the US is not a bicylce friendly land, but I am sure it will change. The resource of our earth are limited.

    These photos are iconic in nature. They capture the mystique of the old masters of black and white film photography. Well done, a pleasure to have been exposed to such wonderful pieces of art.

    Great pictures … two thumbs up!!
    To complete your documentation about bicycle in Holland then you should try to find out when the “Gemeente van Amsterdam” will do the fishing of bicycles from the kanal there … normally they do it once per year …

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Dear Baskoro,

      thank you very much for your information and your comment! Yes we know the fished bicycles from the channel every year. Recently Leiden did this too.

    saya angkat dua jempol di udara.. T-T knapa saya juga gak kepikiran buat ambil tema sepeda.. padahal di tempat saya di SHIZUOKA karena transportasi sulit rata2 penduduk lokal dan juga orang asing spt saya menggunakan sepeda buat alat tranportasi.. inspirasi juga buat saya.. great timing of the moment.. i love this set.. very nice atmosphere, that black and white makes the shot very memorable.

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Terima kasih I Putu untuk komentarnya. Seperti apa kata orang-orang…fotografi adalah tentang melihat – photography is about seeing- dan bukan menyibukkan diri dengan teknik dan kamera.

  31. Martin Jones Says:

    Brilliant work and very interesting thank you Sari.
    Martin

  32. Andut Says:

    nice captures of the moments..
    what really made me interested was that as you said…that most of the bicycles that are used in Holland is the old model..(grandma’s model??)…which is used not only by the old men/women…but also the younger…
    here in indonesia..only old people are using that kind of bicycle…and I must say that the young people will be shy to ride on that kind of old models of bicycle..
    my question is that..why new model of bicycle is not commonly used in holland? I saw in paris and spain..the rented bicycle on the street are new models..

    the other thing surprissed me during my visit to holland was when I asked son of my friend there…that he prefer to buy another bicycle to know that he lost the key of of his bicycle…and I saw his old bicycle was still locked on in front of his apartment..but he lost his key.. 😀
    so probably many bicycles in holland which are locked are being left there by the owners because the same things as son of my friend…

    nice pics jos and ambar!

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Dear Andi,

      I think because it is a classical bicycle and cycling with this oma fiets you have a relaxing position and do not have to use your hands for braking. Young people are shy because not everybody is using it and afraid being talked by other youngsters. In Germany not every young people use bicycle too. I had friend that take a car for a trip that take 15 minutes walking! As I said, the old one is a classical one and are loved by people here in Holland. Strange what happen to your friends in Holland.

      Thank you for your comment Andi!

  47. Steve Smith Says:

    This bike photo entry is superb. I visited Amsterdam when I was 20 and have always held a strong affinity for the Dutch (and Chinese) because of that concept and use of the bike. I fell in love with the spirit behind the roving bikes. Here, in America, many succumb to peer pressure and the car manufacturers pitiful marketing; foolishly thinking they need SUVs for transport and wasting valuable resources. This superb collection of photos is much more rational and immensely beautiful; thank you!

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Dear Steve,

      many thanks for leaving comments. In our country Indonesia, people using bicycle will not have a prestige status-until recently, now there is a change. More people going out on weekend with bicycle.

      best regards,

      Ambarum Sari and Jos Runarka

      • Steve Smith Says:

        You are welcome and thank you for sharing these superb photos. Ironically, things come in full circle. A handful in America are currently using bikes as inner city transport. Cities are increasingly building in bike paths that share equal access and rights as vehicles. I was down on Delaware Ave in Philadelphia, Pa yesterday. This once decrepit 6 to 8 lane road in a once industrial part of the city has been repaved and has bike paths! Pine St also has them. Slowly but surely people here are becoming smarter.

    If you visit jakarta, you may take other similar photos series. As you notice, we have different problems, motorcycle. Jakarta has more than 5 millions now, and it keeps growing. Your photos series remind me to take a picture of that chaotic. Since we don’t have an alternative of a better transportation, we have to accept that. he2…

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Dear Pak Johan,

      a pitty we always have not a lot time to cover that kind of moving vehicle. I believe somebody has already cover that matter. No, we don’t have to accept anything, people minds are changing in Jakarta. Lot’s of cyclist are gathering in the weekend to do sport together. Small steps, better than nothing.

    Great pictures and I really enjoy reading this blog. It is great to live in a city with people who appreciate a simple thing such as this type of transporation riding a bicycle to work, school, market or anyplace. Great job!

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Dear Deddy,

      thanks a lot! We, human should rethink on how we work, move. The climate in The Netherlands doesn’t stop people using bicycle. It would create a better atmosphere in the city.

    Hi, Jos & Sari

    Thanks for good captures about Dutch town scape and lovely cyclists!
    I used to ride my bicycle when I lived in Tokyo, and I really loved the dush feeling & view from saddle…
    Unfortunately,Here the terrible traffic in Hong Kong mid city.
    I’m missing the exhilarate pedaling recently.

    I think you understand the motion of cyclists very well same as your camera operation. So you could capture a running background of pedaling cyclists so naturally!! It’s wonderful!!

    Takumi

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Dear Takumi San,

      thank you for the kind words and sharing your experience with bicycle. Situation in big cities can be very difficult and dangerous too for the average cyclist. Here in The Netherlands, towns are not that big and they have plenty of special track for bicycle. Yes knowing the speed and track they move help to took the shots.

      best regards,

      Jos Runarka and Ambarum Sari

    Had a good chuckle looking at these photographs, I have a Dutch friend who constantly tells me how he’s missing his bicycle (He’s stuck here in South Africa), now I know why!
