How can you film and cycle at the same time? You did go very slowly, I must say.

I'm up for a race. It'll be a race in the center though, I'm confident I'm better at avoiding red traffic lights and trams and cars than you are!

The hotel we've booked for our October trip does bike rental ... I might give it a whirl!

Do bikes have absolute right of way in the red lanes? Would there be any repercussions from 'Old Bill' if I took out a stoned tourist?

Peace, Des.

Biking in Amsterdam is the best, a 10 minute walk take 2 minutes. Cant beat that, plus its just fun to ride around an feel the flow more.

You do have to be careful, look out for cars and other bikes. Amsterdammers aren't very fond of tourists on bikes, they're usually slow and riding on the wrong side of the street. I don't have a bell so I scream "Ring ring! Sorry!" when I want to pass and they always laugh at me. Bastards.

One of the most beautiful things in Amsterdam to me is the sight of a Dutch woman on a bike. The effortless grace is a wonder to behold.
