We’ve heard stories of people missing their Dutch bikes so much they get them shipped over from Holland. It used to cost a bomb to have a real Dutch bike, but now you can get them made locally by Papillionaire.
This Melbourne bike company hand makes Dutch-style bicycles in several easy riding styles that allow you to wear your pants on the outside of your socks.
They opened their doors two weeks ago in South Yarra, so head down to test drive a cruiser, they have two sessions a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Alternatively, customise and purchase you own stead online at www.papillionaire.com.au
But if a custom bike is a little more than you can fork out for 2-wheeled transport, you can always hire a set of wheels from The Humble Vintage.
