I thought this was a very clever, but in all honesty the bicyclists in Amsterdam were scary. It's the one thing I didn't like about the city as pretty much every step we made, we had to be super careful that we weren't in a bike lane. It really made getting around more difficult than it should have been.

It wouldn't be so easy to steal the top bike! It must belong to a strong person. A story here! V

The bike on the post is a great catch ~V~

Walking in Amsterdam is definitely scary. The bikes are silent and almost deadly

that's quite a parking job! V

Ahh...the bikes of Amsterdam. Like no other place. Such a nice photo ~V~

could have tried cycling yourself? Must admit I don't think bicycles and camera go too well ... unless one welded an extension arm and ball head on top of the handlebars

Perhaps the owner of this bike was a bit rude to some otherwise unassuming pedestrians (or tourists) and this was the revenge exacted. Nice find and capture, Helen.

I can't believe that someone actually parked their bike there!! V
