The Dutch Tourist Board would like to donate a brand new self-locking Dutch bicycle as a replacement for David Cameron’s bicycle that was stolen in London on Wednesday evening.
The Conservative leader said he left his bicycle locked to a bollard outside a supermarket in West London while he shopped for salad. On leaving the store, David Cameron discovered his bicycle, which he described as an "old friend", had been stolen.

Throughout Holland, travelling by bicycle is the norm. 16 million people own approximately 12 million bicycles and the Dutch use the bicycle as a regular means of transportation.
