Dutch Love to Cycle

⬅️⬅️⬅️ Holy guacamole! I've never seen as many bikes in my life as I saw in Amsterdam. Dutch absolutely love to cycle! According to our tour guide, there are roughly 881,000 bicycles in Amsterdam. Wow, that's insanely a lot! Believe it or not the city has more bikes than people (821,000 population)! I noticed too that there is not one bicycle helmet found anywhere in the city.

Bike traffic in Amsterdam is really part of the flow of the city. Almost all streets have excellent bike facilities of one type or another. Also, many streets have limited or no car access.

The presence of bikes in Amsterdam is noticeable and sometimes overwhelming in my opinion. It's interesting though!
