Cycling Tips (31)

Bicycle garages

Favorite thing For the Dutch people it is probably not a weird site, but for us it was an extremely funny site to see. All these bicycles parked in their own parking garages.

Favorite thing If you must have a dog, at least train it to sit primly in the basket as you cycle around Amsterdam.

Fondest memory On the last day of our trip we rented bikes and cycled all over the city. Cycling is definitely the best way to get around Amsterdam, and it made us feel more like locals and less like tourists.

So that's where my bike went....

Favorite thing So that's where my bike went. They told us that about 40,000 bicycles a year are dredged from the canals.

Fondest memory Boiling life was especially impressive after stiffy Vienna and so-so calm Paris.I've never seen so many bicyclets per sq.m.

Multi-storey bicycle parks

Favorite thing Amstersdam is meant to be cycled. City planning has perfectly understood this and it is more easy to find mutli-storey bicycle parks than car parks in the centre.

Fondest memory Another thing that I saw in Amsterdam that was very different for me was the parking garages only for bicycles. I'm from the city and I'm used to seeing parking garages but never only for bikes!
