ABC – Amsterdam Bike Culture

I think the bike culture in Amsterdam is even stronger than in Copenhagen! All the streets are designed FOR bikes, to be as easy and as safe as possible for them. Cars are kind of an afterthought, with tons of restrictions on where they can go. It’s the opposite of cities in the US that are called “bike friendly” if they paint a thin white line on a street designed entirely for cars.
