AMSTERDAM - Bike Like The Locals

Biking while in Amsterdam, is really the natural way to see the city. That, and cruising the canals by boat, but that's another story for another day.

If you're in Amsterdam during the summer, rent a bike from Yellow Bike. You can find it right around the corner from our hotel. Just ask the concierge for the location of the store, or walk two blocks to the left of the front of the hotel, and take a quick left in the first wide alley - photo enclosed with the store's front sign, so you can recognize it).

The options are listed in the web at www.yellowbike.nl, so you can plan it well, before you go. Yellow Bikes, offers group tours and bike rentals. I opted for the 24hour rental for 10 Euros, so I would not have to worry about returning the bike to the store before they closed.

With my rented bike, I rode all over the city for the whole day, and when I was done, I parked and locked the bike in front of the hotel, and returned it the next morning, before being picked up for my airport ride. It was so much fun, that I have since, rented a Yellow Bike several times while in Amsterdam.

So, go for it! do something different and ride all the way to the Rembrandt Museum and around all the pretty canals. You'll see Amsterdam in a whole different way, I promise you.

Happy pedaling!
