  4. The transportation of an honest day of work may look very visually stunning but it is also very hard work. The effort speaks for itself. Makes me realise how lucky I am. 🙂

  5. This is a great post, amazing images. Thank you.
    It did sort of make me think though, and even made me sad, about how hard peoples lives are in other countries.
    But also made me how if we lived like that we’d probably reverse CO2 emissions. And conversely, how when half the people in India, Brazil and China start driving cars, how climate change and eco disaster is going to speed up even more. 🙁
    Sorry for being glum! Didn’t mean to depress anyone. This is a super post, and thank you for visiting and following my bog. Having visited here, I’m more than happy to return the compliment. 🙂
    Best regards from Dublin. – Arran.

  6. I want to know how the guy with the balloon bike can even see! I wouldn’t want to carry all those eggs, if you wreck you are in big trouble! Once again you made me smile. Keep it up! 🙂

  7. I am in awe of their ingenious ways of stacking and fastening the loads. there is a real art to it and they have all mastered it in ways that work for each one. Any one of them would be in big trouble if the load should shift or fall – especially the egg man.

  8. LOL! I feel sorry for those poor bicycles but it just shows you, you can find a way around anything. 😀
    Thanks for sharing Russell. Great post as usual. 🙂

  9. I have myself seen many a strange thing being transported via bike while on holiday in Holland including some poor chap with a massive 50″ TV! And fair play, he was riding like the wind.

  10. If I was to be overloaded with anything, my choice is flowers. Awesome post. I couldn’t figure out for the life of me what the bicyclist on the cover photo was carrying…had to come in to find out!

  11. I can give you a top 10 of things I shouldn’t have tried to transport on a bicycle. Includes an office chair, 5 loads of laundry and a microwave.
    I live in Holland, stereotypically… (I’m not Dutch though). I have a bike, but no car, and sometimes getting stuff from A-B is tricky.

  12. OMG!!!!! Those are hard to believe. I feel so unresourceful now. So limited. How do these people change lanes? I thought the log one was very trying until I saw the one with the bricks! The hedgehog was really funny.

  13. The egg one is scary! I couldn’t be that close to all the grass and how do you maneuver a bike with all those bricks?!? I can’t say much, cause when we go camping, my poor compact car looks pretty much like the bike with all the baskets! 🙂
