Cycling in Noord can be done on all different levels. For the occasional cyclist there’s a fine and efficient framework of bike paths, neatly signposted. The speed demons on their racers or mountain bikes will find ideal training grounds in the fields west of Amsterdam’s ring road. The adventurous urban nomad will be seduced by Noord’s winding roads, bridges, dikes, passages and little dirt paths. Getting lost in this case is both inevitable and desirable.
The bicycle and Noord are linked together. They breathe the same rhythm – old-fashioned, yet up-to-date; a wondrous combination of dynamics and serenity.
