Cycling safety tips for a perfect Amsterdam bike tour

It sometimes feels like there are more bikes in Amsterdam than any other mode of transportation. Cycling is highly favored by the local population, so a bike tour is an ideal way to take in the city. To ensure fun, though, you need to take the right precautions!

What to wear while biking in Amsterdam

What to wear while biking in Amsterdam

Wear a helmet and more importantly, don't wear headphones. To be alert as possible, you want to make sure you can hear all traffic around you.

Be aware of the fast pace

Be aware of the fast pace

Locals often ride quite close to each other and quite quickly. Give yourself some time to adjust to the fast pace of the bike lanes, especially if you're not used to city cycling.

Follow the traffic rules!

Follow the traffic rules!

Sometimes seasoned bikers in Amsterdam will run red lights and dart in and out of alleys without looking. We recommend you leave the rule breaking to the pros and follow all traffic signs.

Watch out for the trams

Watch out for the trams

While you walk and bike around Amsterdam you'll notice that there's also a network of trams in the city. Be aware of the trams behind you as you cycle.

Use the bike path

Use the bike path

There are different types of bike lanes in Amsterdam. Some lanes are on street level and you'll be riding next to cars and others are on the sidewalk. Generally, there are symbols so you'll know which lane is yours. Make sure to follow the direction of traffic as most bike lanes are one-way.

Planning Your Visit

When is the best time to cycle in Amsterdam?

Amsterdam's locals cycle year round and it is one of the best ways to get around this city. We would recommend avoiding biking only when it's raining, as the roads can be quite slick.

Do I need to wear a Helmet?

Most cyclists in Amsterdam actually don't wear a helmet and car drivers are quite aware of bikers. However, if you are out of practice or simply nervous, we recommend wearing some protective headgear.

Our tour guide Xavi was brilliant. He was both enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Amsterdam and its history. The cycle itself was very relaxed and suitable for all fitness levels. We were shown the tallest wooden windmill in the Netherlands, the world-famous Rijksmuseum and Vondelpark to name a few places. 10/10 would recommend.
