Amsterdam: Fishing for a bike

DutchAmsterdam.nl — Even Amsterdammers sometimes need to be reminded that anything parked too close to a canal could end up in it…

The video comes from Marc van Woudenberg, who publishes Amsterdamize — one of our favorite Amsterdam-related websites. It’s like this: if it has anything to with Amsterdam + bicycles, you’re bound to find it at Amsterdamize.

Marc writes, “I witnessed a bicycle getting blown into the canal by the wind. My friend Suze and I ventured outside to salvage it, here’s what happened.”

The video was shot at Oudezijds Achterburgwal, in Amsterdam’s Red Light District.

Can you guess how many bikes a year are fished out of the canals?
