The freedom of the road

There is more than just a grain of truth in the saying ‘When in Rome, do as the Romans do’. And when in Amsterdam, one of the main things to do as the locals is cycling. Especially in summer, there’s nothing more exhilarating than jumping on your bike, cycling through the city and feeling the wind in your hair en route to yet another exciting event, attraction or activity. Biking along the canals is one of the most beautiful ways to take in Amsterdam’s historic waterways. And you will always feel like being a part of the city and its people when you’re atop your trusty steed.
