Amsterdam has more bikes than people

Amsterdam has more bikes than people with 767km (478 miles) of cycle lanes. The coronavirus pandemic has further promoted a trend away from the car and public transport.

Amsterdam to use flowers to stop cyclists chaining bikes to bridges

Authorities say canal views blighted by bikes and pedestrians pushed off pavements

Amsterdam prides itself on being one of the world’s most cyclist-friendly cities. But even the Dutch capital has its limits.The municipality has complained that the views of some of the most beautiful canals are being blighted while pedestrians are being forced into the street by the accumulation of bikes being tied to bridge railings.

As a result, the council has decided that wooden plant and flower baskets should be placed on the busiest canal bridges in an attempt to persuade cyclists to find other parking spots.

With a population of just under 17 million, the Netherlands has more bikes than people. It now seems the government may have to create a solution for bike congestion, just as bikes were introduced to reduce car traffic.
