There’s a grown-up steering, plus room for at least a few non-pedalers (though they should beware strict Dutch law that heavily penalizes anyone not actively engaged in riding a bike). Other features: a convertible roof, a small engine in case of critical snack and juice box failures, and a built-in sound system.
