Since the year 1960, with the appearance and growth of cars in the city of Amsterdam, this city has become the paradise for cyclists. Why? Because when cars began to be the main cause of accidents in which children died, the population decided to become a cycling population. That’s why this city is fully adapted to be on two wheels, which makes it a great tourist destination for cyclists.
To pedal around Amsterdam there are a few things you should know. For example, you should not stand in the middle of the lane to do anything. It is dangerous, for you and for other users who are on the road. In this sense, never forget that you should always cycle on the bike lanes, even if you are a tourist, the rules are for everyone, in addition, so avoid risks.
If you travel with your family you will have no problem, especially if you are traveling with children, because in the city rent bakfiets, which are a kind of tricycle with a wooden box that goes in front of the bicycle and there you can sit the children. I told you that the city was prepared for everything related to cycling.
Bicycle parks are amazing. There are too many! I think the problem here will be to find some space, although it is not impossible. In this city, they are very serious about pedaling. I would not hesitate or think twice to visit.
Touring Amsterdam by bicycle will really make you know the city. One morning you can do so many things and go so many places that you would not believe it. You can go from the van Gogh Museum to the Albert Cuyp market, two things totally different, but you must visit.
