Chasing a Typical Dutch Cyclist

In this morning, a lady cyclist appeared in front of me at Linneaustraat on my way to Amstel Station.
- She had shoes with heels,
- She was cycling with left hand,
- She was holding/supporting a bag at the back of the bike with the other hand..
So, a typical dutch cyclist..

I was already in hurry to catch the train, and I was cycling with my maximum speed. "I will pass by this lady" I decided.

But it was not possible at all. To my all efforts, I could not close the gap in between. She was very fast despite one-hand control, heeled shoes, and holding the bag behind.

Very close to the train station, she crossed the street when the traffic light was red, and disappeared on the way..
