Amsterdam. Dominated by bicycle.

Always remember an important thing when going around Amsterdam: bicycles don't have brakes!! On the contrary, they have right of way!!Pay attention! My boyfriend was going to be run over!! =P

Bicycle Hire > Keep It Safe

Hiring a bicycle is a good cheap way to see some of the outlying areas of the City but people do pay the penalty for not looking after it !

Be aware of bikes

They are everywhere, the bikes. They are fast, careless and often more than one person on each bicycle.
