Sometimes when I look at pictures of Amsterdam, I can't help but wonder if it's got more bicycles than people.

I've come across a very informative study on the subject, titled 'Cycling to Sustainability in Amsterdam'.*

Here's an interesting extract from it:

Quote:
Bikes have shaped the image of Amsterdam to such an extent
that, for many people throughout the world, Amsterdam is almost
synonymous with cycling. In 2008, cycling accounted for 38% of
all vehicle trips—a bike mode share unheard of in other European
cities of comparable size (City of Amsterdam, 2009).

With a population of 743,000, Amsterdam is the largest city
in the Netherlands. The greater Amsterdam region has 1.5 million
inhabitants and is situated at the northern end of the Randstad, the
Netherlands’ largest urban agglomeration.

Amsterdam’s city administration estimates that there were
600,000 bikes in Amsterdam in 2006, about 0.75 bikes per inhabitant
(City of Amsterdam, 2007). Amsterdam’s topography and
spatial development patterns are ideal for cycling. The city is
mostly flat and densely built-up.
* Cycling to Sustainability in Amsterdam By Ralph Buehler, Assistant Professor,Virginia Tech and John Pucher, Professor, Rutgers University
