“Great eagerness in the pursuit of wealth, pleasure, or honor, cannot exist without sin.”
— Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536)
Not as widely used as bicycles, the scooter is a common sight on the streets of Amsterdam.
It is possible to rent a scooter; I would reserve its use for touring the countryside rather than getting about the city. Helmets are not required to ride a scooter in the Netherlands.
