In the last few weeks I took hundreds of pictures in the capital of bikes. I do think that these self-propelled machines show us the future of transport in cities and other densely populated areas. Bicycling offers a lot of advantages: it creates a healthy and active lifestyle, it doesn’t cause pollution, noise and parking problems, it is about five times faster than walking and it even saves money.
These fifteen pictures of Amsterdam Bikes show me the identity of the owners and human ingenuity. Bikes demonstrate human creativity, craftmanship and freedom. Bikes are the future. Private cars belong to the past. The 790.044 residents of Amsterdam are an example for the world: they own 881.000 bikes!
