Since we've moved to Holland, Jennifer has been a fan of the bakfiets. A bakfiets is a bicycle with a box in front where you stow your kids and your shopping (or your dog). Getting around town by car is a major hassle, and cycling is the way to go. A bakfiets is the ultimate solution for families, and now that we have two kids, I'd really like to have one. We haven't gotten one yet because we have nowhere to store it when not in use, but we are thinking of getting one to bring along for the many bike paths in Perth. That led us to some internet research of different models, and just when you thought you'd seen everything...
This bakfiets holds up to 13 children. Yes, the image is photoshopped and not realistic, but the bike really does exist. It's a man-powered school bus on two wheels. This is insane.
