    I stupidly went biking on a ridiculously windy day a few weeks ago, and nearly died (multiple times). I finally decided to do the sensible thing and take my bike on the U-bahn!

      :O Actually, taking bikes on trains is very normal in NL (most trains even have special spaces reserved for bikes), but I’ve noticed that a lot of people here like taking their bikes during rush hour… terrible! If you do it outside of rush hour/not on a full train, you’re forgiven. :p

        The plain (non high speed) international trains from and to Germany are pretty good for taking bikes with you as well. Once, I had to terminate a biking trip prematurely because of a dislocated shoulder, and took the train from Norddeich in Ostfriesland, transfered at Osnabrück on a train to The Netherlands. The staff of Norddeich station even arranged assistance from the Bahnhofsmission to help me, my luggage and my bike transfer. Other train passengers on board of both trains were very friendly and helpful as well.

          Wow, how nice of them! That would make me feeling happy for the rest of the day (er, despite the pain and discomfort I guess). :3
          Haven’t travelled with those trains much actually (ICE for me).

            It dit make me happy, too. I got a sedative when they janked my arm to get the shoulder jont back in it’s socket, but they said I could endure the pain much better than they expect for persons undergoing the procedure. I even giggled a bit, because I found the pulling procedure a bit comical. It earned me the nicknamed “Der Indianer”, given to me by the nurses.
            The train I took in north-south direction has an interesting route, it runs from the pier where the ferries to the Wadden Sea islands Juist and Norderney depart, all the way down to the city of Luxembourg

            Huuurgh how brave! That would really be something that would either make me faint or throw up (never had to go to a hospital for anything, ever). The sedative at the dentist’s makes me giggle a lot too, actually. The sedative. Not what he does. -_-
            That sounds like a lovely route. Just mountains and little villages for me I’m afraid, whenever I go with the ICE (still pretty though).
