Oh Amsterdam, we’re so jealous.
The world’s cycling modal share leader is so overcrowded with bikes now that the challenge is now with parking.
Last year the city’s authorities reclaimed space occupied by 64,000 bikes chained to railings and lamp posts.
Now there are plans to add bike parking on the water with a series of pontoon bike docks, as well as excavating below the canals to create underground bike parking.
It is projected that by 2023 there will be 17,500 more bike parking spaces at Amsterdam’s Centraal Station, rising to 21,500 by 2030 when the bike pontoons are open.
