Today was the hottest day of the year, but since I didn't feel like staying home, I went for a bit of a cycling tour through my own city.

1 Cycling that is.

2 Through the Jordaan area along the canal.

3 Behind Central Station. Tourists. At least these don't stop in the middle of the road.

4 Shot from the same exact spot, with a 180 degrees turn.

5 Same goes for this one, 3 shots without moving a step.

6 From the roof of the Amsterdam Public Librairy. My bike is down there somewhere between the other 500. Some lady told me I had a lot of nerves locking my bike to the "no bicycles here" sign. When I asked her if she didn't have anything better to do she apologized end left. Some people here are weird.

I love threads like this where I can enjoy the sights of someone else's country for a few minutes. Thanks for sharing your bike tour.
