Cycling is a fun, efficient and easy way of getting around Amsterdam - just like the locals do! Even if you only pedal around for a few hours, riding a bike is an essential Amsterdam experience.

Hire a bike in Amsterdam

Biking in Amsterdam is safe and easy, thanks to the flat landscape and multitude of wide bike paths. But before you set out, take a few minutes to learn more about cycling in Amsterdam. After renting your bike, follow any instructions the vendor might give you and take care to always properly lock your bike (and lock it up in authorised locations only). MacBike offers a free multilingual leaflet on how to cycle safely through Amsterdam.

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.
