If it Fits, I'll shove it in there

Bikes. Everywhere. Everywhere...

Amsterdam July 2016


Forget any notion of sidewalk space for pedestrians. Nope my bike goes there

Cyclists in the Land of Bicyclists

In the sea of bicycles at Amsterdam Centraal, yours truly managed to find a space. Yes you read that right. I took this picture so I wouldn't forget where I put it because one morning, I could not find my bike and was convinced someone stole it (whyyyyyyy why my tiny bike?? who wants that?) – negative I parked it further up the night before, inebriated, and outsmarting my next-day self. So anyway, what do we have in this picture? A couple tourists perhaps? With the most gaudy orange bags-or-whatever-that-is-in-the-front, along with *gasp* helmets, and the man even has gloves on -_- he's ready to drive his bicycle instead of ride it. Just embrace that for once, you are in the city where you do not need to fight cars to share the road. Welcome to Amsterdam.

This is the land of the real Viking Biking. Sorry Copenhagen.

Beyond the hospitality to cyclists, nobody steals anything. What if I told you, that you can leave your bike, unlocked, with stuff on it, and nobody will touch it? This is almost unheard of. What shenanigans are these? Answer: Iceland is a tiny country and everyone looks out for each other. If you're drunk, someone will walk you home. It's a wonderful embodiment of a civilized society.
