Nearly 85 percent of the Dutch own at least one bicycle, and they use it regularly, often daily. There are about 16 million bicycles in Holland, which is about one for every inhabitant. About 1.3 million new bicycles are sold every year. It's also a fact that the Dutch drink over 2.3 million hectoliters of beer every year.

So why not combine the best of both worlds? The bicycle-cafe provides seating for up to 17 people. Sound equipment and beer installation are placed in the middle of the bar, from where the bartender can serve beer to his cycling (and probably thirsty) customers.
