Upon arriving in Amsterdam you can’t notice the Dutch like bikes! It is said that there are nearly 1 000 000 bikes for 700 000 Amsterdammers. It makes it logical as Amsterdam is quite car-unfriendly city with its narrow streets with single-lane one-way traffic only, numerous canals and a scanty number of parking spaces at incredibly high prices. Thus, just about everyone rides a bike in Amsterdam!
Men and women no matter their age, profession, social status or whether conditions happily bike along the streets of Amsterdam. It seems like Amsterdammers start pedalling even before they start walking. Stop just for 5 minutes on any corner and you can easily see formally dressed bicyclist heading to the office building, informally dressed ones walking their dogs by bike, bringing home groceries, flowers, furniture, children, girlfriends or boyfriends.
Obviously, there is no better way to discover Amsterdam than by bike! Are you ready? Have a look at the Bikecity’s website to find a perfect bike for you, get some useful tips from About.com’s article and try the itinerary offered by Amsterdam.info
