    Fine, but it's an uninformed comment.

    If you think they are selling because they are fashionable, you just don't know dutch bikes and should not comment.

    I'd say slow down. No need to go fast, especially on such a short ride. I've been a bicycle commuter for 8 years and have never seen the need to "warm up".
