In Amsterdam, cyclists are the queens and kings of the city. Most of the country is flat, especially the area around Amsterdam and there’s special lanes everywhere. Cycling in Amsterdam is the most authentic way for any backpackers to see the city. Amsterdam is perfectly set up for cycling.
If you’re a pedestrian, however, always look both sides before crossing the road and don’t make the mistake of walking in a bicycle lane or you risk being run over.
