Important during the bicycle tour of Amsterdam
Please don't become so Dutch that you disregard the traffic laws. It is a fack that some Amsterdammers do this. They don't stop for a red light, they cross a street or a bridge when they feel like doing it instead of paying no attention to situation. That is why staying alert and a little bit of biking experience can help you to navigate through the small city streets durint an Amsterdam bike tour.
Also, unless you are 100% sure that the weather will be plenty sunny a warm, then bring a jacket. When you start moving on the bike the humid Amsterdamese air can get quite cold.
