If you talk about something typically Dutch, then clogs, cheese and windmills are of course mentioned.
But the Netherlands is also a cycling country par excellence. There are some 23 million bicycles in the Netherlands, which is more than the number of inhabitants. We cycle no less than 15 billion kilometres per year, which comes down to 888 kilometres per inhabitant per year.
With so many bicycles and so many kilometres, it is not so surprising that you have to deal with a bicycle repair. Unfortunately, most bicycle repairs are almost always unexpected and come at a time that is not convenient for you at all. Be honest, is fixing tyres your favourite pastime?

Fixing the tyres
One of the inconveniences you can experience as a cyclist is getting a flat tyre, a common bicycle repair. A puncture usually happens far from home, in the rain or when you have an appointment for which you cannot be late. It is important to get that puncture repaired immediately. Preferably don't drive on it to prevent further damage. Zoofy's handyman service is easy to arrange online. Within no time, a handy student will be at your doorstep to carry out the home bicycle repair, in this case the sealing of the tyres. The costs for sealing the tyres are relatively low, while the convenience of a home bicycle repair is great. Of course, we are also happy to come and repair your bicycle at your office address. A small effort.
Flat tyres, and therefore a bicycle repair, can largely be avoided. Therefore, pay attention to the following points:
Always buy a good quality (puncture-proof) tyre.
Make sure there is enough profile. You are more likely to puncture a bald tyre
Do not cycle off a kerb and avoid kerbstones
Watch out for holes in the road, you could even fall.
Check your tyre pressure regularly. Under or over inflation causes wear and tear.
Watch out for litter on the road; an empty soda can can can cause a puncture.
