Safety in traffic is crucial. Having said that, finding a safe parking spot for your bicycle is pretty handy too. There are two ways to park your bicycle safely: in a guarded bicycle parking facility or well-locked in an unguarded bicycle shed. If you park unguarded, make sure that you use an extra lock to fix your bicycle to a stand or a pole.

If you do not own a bicycle, you can buy or rent one, or choose a different transport mode. The public transport system is well-developed and very commonly used in the Netherlands and the bicycle is great to use for the first and last mile of your trip. 

The cycling infrastructure in the Netherlands is of high quality all over the country, allowing you to travel by bicycle where-ever you are. Because it is a healthy mode of transportation that is available throughout the country for a low price, it is promoted in many ways to increase the use of sustainable transport modes.
