Amsterdam girls on bikes — in slow motion

DutchAmsterdam.nl — In Amsterdam bicycling is seen primarily as the best way to get from point A to point B in a 730+ years old city that was not designed for heavy traffic.

Bicycling in Amsterdam as seen through the eyes of a tourist. Filmed by Zozdominator.

When Amsterdammers are not walking they’re cycling:

To work
To school
To the market
To the grocery store
To the bakery
To the pub
To a park
To the butchers
To the flower stand
To another pub
To a friend’s house

Yes, we could take public transport but that’s an alternative you take only if you really have to. It’s both slow and expensive, though quite welcome when the weather goes pear-shaped or you’re simply too tired or too lazy to bike far.

Anyway, we’ve noticed — certainly not for the first time — that tourists also view biking as, well, a tourist attraction. Even if they don’t dare try riding a bike themselves, they do enjoy watching the scenery. And who can fault them for that?
