With about 600.000 cycles for 750.000 inhabitants, Amsterdam is THE city where the bicycle carries best its name in Europe. It is necessary to say that Netherlands is the only country to count more cycles than inhabitants - on average 1,11 cycle a person.
In Amsterdam, there are more than 400 kilometres of bicycle paths, and whoever tried to cross them on foot without looking was called back the order by the multiple knocks of horn. But once the tamed traffic, we discover a real paradise for the amateurs of the two-wheeler. 40 % of the inhabitants use their bicycle as main mode of transport.

A lovely shot. This cyclist has colourful theme in his clothings. And I like the look in his face.

This is a great shot with the cyclist coming straight towards you in his striking clothing. The shallow DOF works very well with the activity behind the subject visible but not intrusive.

Pas évident de figer un sujet en mouvement de face.C'est réussi avec la netteté juste là où il faut.

una foto molto diversa dalla maggioranza della tua galleria.
Amo molto andare in bici e Amsterdam potrebbe essere una città ideale, peccato sia una città, preferisco la campagna....
Molto originale l'abbigliamento di questo signore e questo rende molto più attraente in il tuo scatto.
