Knowing your way around

Noord residents are avid users of the Canta: a motorbike on four wheels, or rather a bumper car. It fits one and a half people, but that doesn’t stop people from sitting in it together. It was designed for the disabled, but seems very useful to Northerners: it keeps you dry when it rains and you can park it anywhere. Also, it’s allowed on the ferry and you can take your dog for a walk in it. Lately, the hipster carrier bike has been spotted in Noord as well. The question is whether the Northerners will choose the hip image of the carrier bike or the comfort of the Canta for the future.
