Amsterdam is the City of Bikes — the Bicycle Capital of the World. Tourists marvel at the number of bikes they see, and the way people use them.
Bicycles have in fact become one of Amsterdam’s tourist attractions. There is at least one bike for every one of the 837,000 Amsterdammers.
Currently, 68% of traffic to and from work or school is by bike, and bikes account for 36 percent of all traffic movements in Amsterdam.
