Amsterdam Bike Parking


I just returned from a great holiday in the Netherlands. Yes, that lovely, little Lowland commonly known as Holland.
This is a typical 'gracht' (canal) in Amsterdam. Residents often park their bikes on the bridges over the canals because bikes will be taken away when they are parked in front of stores or home windows. People in this lovely country ride inexpensive or old bikes in the city in case they get stolen and many do get stolen everyday.
Bikes also get tagged by the bike police and if the bikes are left untouched for a few weeks, the bikes get taken away.
