Amsterdam Bicycle City
Amsterdam is known for it's Canal Zone, 17th century Center, great museums, etc. But there is so much more. For examle: Amsterdam is Nr. 1 Bicycle City in the World. Bicycles have been around in the city since the end of the 19th century and an Amsterdammer cannot imagine life without it. A bicycle is by far the best way to explore the city, but you have to know how, when and where to go.
So this is my offer. We go on a bike ride for half a day. We will start at our house in the center of town. We first drink a coffee, get prepared, take some water with us and then set off in Western direction. We are going to make a circular bike ride. From center, heading North, to East, South, and West before we finally will return home. Along the way you will come to understand the magic and the power of the circular city design. We will see how Amsterdam was designed and laid out in the past, but also how it is now, and how it will look like in the near future. You will see city sights, really nice countryside, and the harbour, the 10th largest in Europe. We will hit the edges of town, watch the crazy car traffic on the highways above us. You'll watch cargo ships sail to the Rhine, and then further into Europe. A City Safari on Bike, exploring and experiencing all sides of town. Expect the unexpected and a lifetime experience.
Safety and Breaks
We will follow bike lanes only, so it is safe. On the way we have time and opportunity to grab a coffee, a soft drink, or an ice cream. You can bring your own food and drinks, or we can sit down somewhere and have a picnic, brought to us by Martine of Martine’s Table. It’s up to you.
