Amsterdam Bicycles

amsterdam-bicyclesOf all the icons associated with Amsterdam, most symbolic for me are bicycles and canals.  One of my favorite things to do in Amsterdam is walk along the canals and see all the fascinating buildings, narrow and tall, with their ornate gables and facades.  It’s fun to see dates from hundreds of years ago inscribed on many of them.  Bicycles are everywhere and you quickly learn to watch out for them because bicyclists zip around almost as fast as the cars!
