If only the whole world were a lot like The Netherlands, then bike tours would be a huge business, and the world would be a much better place.
At Bogotá Bike Tours we normally get Dutch riders in numbers far out of proportion to that tiny nation’s size. But these last few days we’ve received a big burst of Orange-suited riders, commemorating Dutch King Willem-Alexander’s 48th birthday.
Yesterday, the Embassy of the Netherlands organized a ‘Ciclovía Naranja’ as part of the city’s normal Sunday/holiday Ciclovía, for which they rented some of our bikes. Today, an orange-dressed crew from the Dutch airline KLM did the bike tour – and even oranged up their bicycles.
Final three pics are from the Dutch embassy’s Facebook page.
