Other than the bridges, Holland is a flat country so riding a bike makes perfect sense. The 'bike-only' lanes are quite nice too, since you don't have to worry about getting run over by a bus like you do in London. There are around 600,000 bikes in Amsterdam (yes, they are everywhere), and there are over 220 bikes stolen every day there - so it was good I didn't get off mine for more than a quick stretch. Another random bike fact is there are around 10,000 bikes recovered from canals every year as well.
