I’m in Amsterdam for the week and I have my rental vehicle for the next four days. It’s got a 7 speed manual gearbox and easily maintains about 15-20mph without much effort. Front and rear brakes stop my speed demon with ease and the audible warning device rings loudly. Should be fun and hopefully it doesn’t get stolen, but who knows considering this is Amsterdam. But I paid the extra 10 euros for the week to have theft insurance so I almost wish it does get taken, makes my insurance purchase worth it! Hah but it’s a bit of peace of mind either way. Here’s what I’ve seen so far.
I didn’t bike to the beach nor the windmills, those were a train trip. But I am biking today to see Murder Castle or whatever it actually is in Dutch. But I like calling it Murder Castle instead because that sounds sweet. Surprisingly it's not raining but I did get hailed on the other day. So we shall see if the weather holds out this week.
