Not sure what it is about Amsterdam that makes people want to ride a bike, but I have never seen anything like it. Bikes were everywhere! They have the right of way over cars AND over pedestrians. I can’t tell you how many Amsterdamians almost ran me smack over because I was walking in a bike lane.
Not only are they super-duper popular, but they are oh-so-adorable too. Beach cruisers with big baskets (little dog included). In all honesty, the bikes are probably one of the things I will remember most about Amsterdam. Bon Ap!
