BLOG: How does riding a Dutch bicycle feel?

Monday, 18 June 2012 14:24:38 Europe/London

The riding position is the traditional "sit up and beg". It may take a little getting used to if you've not tried it before but I personally find it the most stable, safe and comfortable position for day-to-day cycling. You exert much less energy and therefore get less sweaty, clothes don't ride up your back and the higher position makes you more visible to traffic.
