Amsterdam then and now with pedestrians and bicycles

Where bikes are like water to a fish

This short film on Amsterdam will change the way you think about bicycles.

Amsterdam is widely considered to be one of the very best cities for cyclists in the world.

It wasn’t always like that.  In the 1950s, Amsterdam traffic consisted mostly of cars.  The public wanted this to change and over many years completely changed the culture of transportation.  Seeing images from a few decades ago when the city was choked with cars really brings the point home.

The locals took some very specific steps to get to where they are today, something that many other cities around the world could learn from.
