So when we were in Amsterdam, I was delighted to see so many bicycles in fact there are more bikes than people! When they are not in use, they are chained to fences, trees or in the multi-storey bike park creating a unique cityscape. It’s fantastic that it is the norm for the entire population to cycle – you see smart businessmen on bikes, women on their way to work with children in the ‘bakfiets’ – a wagon affair attached to the front of the bike and ‘free spirits’ with decorated bikes. We joined the love affair by hiring bikes and having a day out along the canals.
