Sometimes a good bike and a good city is all you need to have an adventure. Most of the time, you don't even need the bicycle. But isn't it great when you're in a city for the very first time and can actually feel safe about traversing its streets? Amsterdam is known for being a fantastically bike safe city, and we thought that's a good enough reason to feature it for our latest City Spotlight post. 

Scroll through to discover what Amsterdam has to offer on two wheels. All of the images in this collection can be downloaded royalty-free!

  Image of Amsterdam's canals  by  Veniamin Kraskov   The canals in Amsterdam are so beautifully integrated into the city - the perfect blend of nature and urban landscape. Stop to take in the views and you might even feel a slight sea breeze. (It can happen.)

  Image of Python Bridge in Amsterdam  by  alchena   A city's bridges are not only a landmark for the eyes when discovering a new place, but they also serve as a nice bit of history. This  is one of the newer bridges of Amsterdam, built in 2001. The Python Bridge went on to win the International Footbridge Award in 2002.

  Image of Windmill in Amsterdam  by  kavalenkava volha   A break from the urban streets might be good for your lungs, and the windmills are a perfect excuse to get some fresh air. They sit along lush green landscapes and were once an omnipresent part of life in Holland. And though there were once 10,000 windmills all over the Netherlands, only eight remain in Amsterdam.
