First Bicycle Ride in Amsterdam

We rented bicycles on Saturday and had our first experience of riding around the city. We picked them up Friday afternoon, which started out pouring rain, so we had umbrellas and rain jackets, but later it got nice and warm. So in the photo, Lorie is in front of me wearing her rain jacket and a waterproof bag. I have the umbrellas strapped to the handle bars. Then Saturday, we took a lesson with a guy so we could get tips on the bicycle crossings, rules of the road and other details that are new to us when riding here versus the US.

Basically, bicycles rule the road even though they have their own lane. They even have their own stop lights, but they go with the flow of the car traffic which is often a little separate from the cars and foot traffic.
