Isn’t riding a bike while holding hands dangerous?
Riding a bike induces an expression of love
There is something about riding a bike that induces an expression of love. It could come from the simple act of biking. I always feel a sense of gratitude of being in the bike lane. Especially when I’m reminded of being corralled onto a streetcar or subway. Admiring the beauty of a city like Amsterdam while biking only helps to evoke that feeling.
When engaged in conversation with someone you love, there is almost a natural inclination to hold hands while riding. It brings them close to you, establishing a connection where cycling no longer is just a mode of transportation.
