At the beginning of March 2015, cycle BOOM researcher Ben Spencer had the opportunity to return to the Netherlands for the first time in over 20 years. He accompanied an Urban Design field trip organised by the Department of Planning at Oxford Brookes University and had the chance to observe the many people using cycles in Amsterdam - and to take a few snaps of older people on bikes.
