Bicycles, bicycles

Did we first had a car parking problem in Amsterdam, now the bicycle parking is totally out of control. This is the situation at the Central Railway Station, where many people drop their bike to get a train. The Dutch have always used a bike as transport but the population has increased dramatically with amongst others many students.

Bike parkings are realised like the bicycle apartment building in the water with three floors but it seems never enough. Now there are plans to go underground.

  7. I would be worried about finding my bike in the midst of all those. Much cheaper to build bicycle parking than car parking, so good for the Dutch!
