    Skirt guard on a bike

    by nighthawk Written Jul 14, 2004

    To protect their skirt from getting tangled up in the wheel, some women made their own skirt protection in crochet and put that on their bike.
    I remember these from when I was younger, but I always thought it had gone out of fashion, nice to see it back.

    Colourful bike

    by nighthawk Written Jul 14, 2004

    There are undoubtly more places where people still dress up their bikes, but I only see it in Bunschoten.

    I just love these coloured wires round the spikes of this bike.

    Bunschoter woman, village

    by nighthawk Written Jul 14, 2004

    Favorite thing: Bunschoten is but a small village and it is a nice thing to spend some time in the area around the harbour, where most shops are.

    Here you can find the statue of the "Bunschoter woman", donated to the village by the local people.

    In the back you can see the bell tower that was donated to the village by the merchants of the village.

    Regional costume Bunschoten Spakenburg

    by nighthawk Written Apr 28, 2004

    Favorite thing: Older women still wear the regional costumes.
    We call it costumes, but to them it is the normal way to dress. I find it just great that they still put up the effort each morning to dress up like this.

    Fondest memory: On this picture you can see a woman watching kids jumping on a big jumping cushion. I do like the contrast of the modern play stuff and the dress.
