Last week I was in Amsterdam and I wondered why many bicycles are lying on the streets. Well I found out that this is a new policy of the city-counsel. Many bikes are locked on bridges or gates, sometimes for ages, and they want a better control on it. There are almost as many bicycles as inhabitants in the city and it is becoming a big problem. To built a proper shelter there is no money.
A "clever" person behind a desk had a bright idea, let the people put the bike on a stand in a special place marked with a with line on the street! It was a rather stormy day and this is the result, brilliant isn't it?
