Amsterdam & Bikes

We heard from a tour guide in Amsterdam that the number of bicycles exceeds the population by 6 times.  Could there be 6,000,000?  Now searching the Internet - its more like almost 2 bikes per person.

With all those bikes why is there a sign like this?

Actually it was a very small sign affixed to a fence so bikes wouldn't be parked there.

There are parking lots for bikes every where.

Even parking garages that go up several stories.

Bikes get stolen or the owner just can't remember where they parked their bike.

It was a rainy, dreary day but that didn't stop the bike commuters on this Tuesday morning.
