one of the things i loved most about amsterdam during my exchange semester was biking. people in amsterdam go almost everywhere by bike, they even have special bikes where they can carry their kids, pets or other stuff around. the cycle path network in the netherlands is excellent and you can reach everything by bike, it is kind of strange if you live in amsterdam and you don’t own a bike. you can see people of all ages and styles riding a bike there.
it’s best to buy a bike which is not too expensive, they get stolen very easily if don’t pay enough attention on locking it. unfortunately my first bike got stolen after 3 months but the second one stayed by my side until the end :)
here are some photos of bikers i took in amsterdam wiht my lensbaby.
