AMSTERDAM’S CANALS FREEZE – bikes on ice

It can sometimes be hard to find a place to park your bike in Amsterdam, but at the moment it's no problem. Photo: schlijper.nl

It’s been a long time since Amsterdam’s canals have been this frozen. I suspect if I were there right now I’d be huddled inside by a heater, but it’s nice to be able to admire them from a distance.

Thanks, Menno Heslinga, for bringing this to my attention via Facebook and acknowledgements to Thomas Schlijper for the photo above. More of his work is on schlijper.nl, including this bit of video of a young thrill-seeker trying to ride a bike across the ice.
