"Lock your bike" Cycling Tip by barryg23

Cycling, Amsterdam: 60 reviews and 52 photos

  No room to park the bike
by barryg23

I've read that there are 500,000 bikes in Amsterdam and a million stolen every year. So on average each bike gets taken twice. Hence if you rent a bike make sure you get a good lock and check with the rental shop what their policy is on stolen bikes. (The guy we rented them from said there would be no charge if stolen provided we returned the lock keys?!)

Address: Amsterdam
