Cycling in Amsterdam is a way of life

Cycle like a local

What better way to keep fit, save money and see a city than to cycle? This is the most convenient form of transport in Amsterdam and one that is favoured by locals. Bicycles can be found everywhere. In fact, it is reported that there are more bicycles than people in Amsterdam! Bicycles are also perfect for getting out of the city and seeing some of the sites on the outskirts such as the lake at Sloterplas or the quaint village of Ouderkerk founded in the Middle Ages. Practically all of Amsterdam and its surrounds can be viewed on bike owing to the well-built bike paths and accessible routes that crisscross the area.
