Leiden is no doubt a city of bicyles being a university town and all. To get from point A to B you must have a bike here as a student, unless you want to either walk or take public transportation. I mostly walk and take public transportation because I am not that comfortable with riding a biycle in a crowded area. I am not afraid of getting run over by a car since there are plenty of bike paths to follow. I am more worried about running my bike into a car. Perhpas some day I will fee confident enough to ride on the main streets without fearing of running into anyone.
I am quite fond of bicycles, especially the ones with unique features like extra seating for the little ones. One thing for sure I will never be the one riding with my child if I can’t get to a level that my future husband will trust me enough with his children, LOL.
