Is there anything better than a bicycle to help us navigate city centres, providing a satisfying sense of physical and mental wellbeing, combining physical activity and eco-friendly habits in one happy package?
This opinion is shared across cities, including in Amsterdam.
For decades, the Dutch capital has been referred to as a symbol of alternative mobility and as an example to follow, even if in reality, its citizens don’t experience it as alternative. It’s simply a habit.
What might seem to be a sort of positive tradition is actually strongly influenced by the political and administrative decisions of the local government, which aims to make Amsterdam a champion of the energy transition.
