1.4 million new bikes bought in 2007

The sale of new bicycles rose sharply over the past two years according to figures released on Monday by the national statistics office CBS.

Turnover rose 15% in 2006 and 9% – 1.4 million bikes – in 2007. The first quarter of 2008 saw a rise of 3% over 2007.
A good start, says the CBS, as most people buy a new bike in the second quarter.
