Finding a parking place for your car can be rather difficult, but finding a place to park your bicycle can be even more complicated. Although the ultimate challenge is to retrieve it.
Every train station has a parking lot for bicycles, so does Dordrecht. More than once after having returned from a trip, I am looking around frenziedly in order to find my bike. Did I park it on the left? No, that was yesterday. Then it must be in this row. Just when I start to think: ‘It’s been stolen! It’s been stolen!’, I catch sight of my two-wheeled friend waiting for me patiently in the same spot where I had left it that morning.
The parking lot of Amsterdam Central Station excels all the others in size. As space is scarce and expensive, the town hall decided to erect a parking lot with different floors. Just as in a garage, the floors have numbers hoping this helps you to find back your bike. The amount of bicycles is enormous. Above and below a few photos to give you an idea of this construction.
