Become a real local: get on a bike and discover the city. For foreign visitors it might be hard to understand, but to locals, biking is the most practical and fastest way to get from A to B in the centre of the city. The 17th century centre of Amsterdam is not made for cars. The narrow streets and canals are usually fit for pedestrians, but also bikes. Biking is above all healthy, practical and fun!
Biking is also an attractive and adventurous way for tourists to explore the city. It is often faster and cheaper than public transport, and it allows you to combine different activities. When you rent a bike, be careful not to get the wheel stuck in a tram rail. You can then lose control of the bike and fall.
