Explore Amsterdam City, Amsterdam Holland and more!

.

Cycling is a fun, efficient and easy way of getting around Amsterdam – just like the locals do! With bicycle rental shops all over the city, it’s quite simple to explore the city by bike.

Are they having fun? Maybe it's a first date. :) <> How'd you like to have to wear that lady's get-up when you jump on your bike? (vintage tandem bike, bicycle, whew) To those bike riding pioneers who worked the kinks out for us - hats off!

You can also tour the city by bike. You have a couple different options with children. If the kids are old enough, you can each rent your own or you can rent a two-person tandem bike. If you really want to be Dutch and fit in, get a bakfiets. A bakfiets has a little seating area on the front of the bike (it almost looks like a wheelbarrow or box), so young kids can ride up front.

Love the fashion statement (and that bag!) whilst riding a bike with children. Fabulous!

Bakfiet: a dutch bike with super-capacity cargo space!  I need to get one of these to replace my gas consuming car.
