The only way to really feel immersed in a new location is through hands-on exploration. While hoofing it on foot is always a great way to get a lay of the land, cycling is a lot faster and can cover far more ground in less time.

 

Explore these top five cities for cycling to see even more highlights in one day.

 

Amsterdam

A list about cycling wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Amsterdam. Famous for the easily bike-able streets and near 50/50 bike-to-car ratio, Amsterdam is a peddlers’ paradise. The capital of the Netherlands is known as the bicycle capital of the world. Expect tourists and locals alike traveling to and fro on bikes, when not on foot.

 

Copenhagen

Denmark’s capital and another top cycling destination, Copenhagen is a city of cycling exploration. See the sights from the iconic Tivoli Gardens and “The Little Mermaid” stature to Amalienborg. Expect cyclers along every path in the city with bike-parking galore.

 

Montreal

The old-world charm of Montreal’s varied European-style streets offers cyclers easy paths through the innerworkings of the city. Explore Old Montreal and get from top attractions like Notre-Dame Basilica and Mount Royal in half the time it would take to walk.

 

Berlin

Between Berlin’s stunning architectural landmarks by day and vibrant club scene at night, you’re going to want to save your steps for the dance floor. Bike around the German capital’s easy city streets with wide paths, even in the more touristy areas.

 

Buenos Aires

The easily traversed capital city of Argentina, Buenos Aires is a densely populated city with a beach coastline and plenty of green spaces. You’re going to want a bike to get you from one corner of the city to the next. See the high-rises and bright lights of downtown, or ride along the coastline — either way, the cycle-friendly streets and trails will lead you to something fun.
