It was the hottest weekend since 1910 in Holland. This Texan was not complaining. Back to cold, windy Amsterdam.
Amsterdam might be the bike city capital of the world but I must say Berlin ain’t doing so bad either. The majority of my time spent in Berlin was on two wheels and I found it to be just as easy as Amsterdam. I did find the bikers in Berlin to be a little more urban and less casual. Most bikes seemed to have gears and two baskets, therefore not much doubling up on on a single bike. It seems like having a back basket in Amsterdam is almost offensive since riders are always in the situation of giving our bikeless buddies a ride.
