Winter Olympics: Dutch Rail Bikes

The Dutch Embassy brought 400 Dutch Rail bikes with them to the Olympics and at least two were parked outside of our hotel.

We also saw them riding around. They’re well adapted to the wet and we’ll see more this weekend when we’re in Amsterdam for the first Mobile Social of the year during the FITC conference.

Over 650 people attended a ride organized by the Dutch Embassy on Feb. 6. They shipped 400 Dutch Rail bikes to BC for the Winter Olympics—for the staff and athletes to ride, probably because (being Dutch?) they’d lost without bikes to get around!

I posted 8 photos of the ride on Facebook if you’re interested:
