How to Bike Like An Amsterdammer, Holland – Amsterdam should be a cyclist’s dream. Bikes are a great way of getting around Amsterdam. The city has about 4.000 kms (2.480 miles) of cycle paths and so many bikes it’s like the Tour de France for normal rides.

And hand signals are part of the riding etiquette that most cyclists seem to follow in Amsterdam. There is also an expectation from other cyclists that you will keep clear of the cycle path if you are waiting at an intersection, allowing other cyclists to proceed unimpeded. The common sense etiquette that appears in Amsterdam helps ensure riding in Amsterdam is smooth and conflict-free.

The truth is, I would love to ride further than 10km, but I just don’t have enough time in my day to do it.

Have a fantastic week everyone!
