Bicycles of Amsterdam: Bike Storage

Where to lock up your bike is an important issue in the Netherlands. I’ve read that there are about 14-16 million people in the country, but around 18 million bicycles. At the Amsterdam Zuid train station, there is a big underground bike parking facility that you can see people lining up for. But it fills up quickly. People quickly use all of the bike racks, and there are many, so then lamp posts, drain pipes, trees and anything else works as a thing to lock your bike to. Some people just lock bikes to each other and take over the sidewalk.

    That statistic, # of people to # of bikes was related at last Thursdays LCC community discussion. It’s because my ride the train to their work place so they leave one both places.

    I figured that was the case, since there are so many bicycles outside the train stations at all hours and very few people take their bike on the train.
