It is estimated that Amsterdam has approximately 881,000 bicycles. This is an estimate from 2012. Every day, approximately 400,000 people cycle, making an average of 665,000 bicycle rides. – Source: and

How many bicycles are removed by the municipality?

The bicycle depot removes many bicycles because they are parked incorrectly or are classified as wrecks. This is how we keep the city clean and orderly. But yes, it is annoying if you suddenly lose it because you were in a hurry or missed a sign!

The Bicycle Depot removed more than 81,000 bicycles in 2017. (source: Dutch newspaper Het Parool) You can have your bicycle delivered to your home for a fee, or pick it up at the depot itself. Quite an undertaking, to which Het Parool itself devoted an extensive article in 2023.

How many bicycles get stolen in Amsterdam?

In recent years, around 11,000 bicycles have been reported stolen per year in Amsterdam. Please note that many people do not report the theft, so we think it could easily be twice as much! Believe it or not, our Yellow Bikes are also stolen regularly. That is why we always recommend theft insurance for your Amsterdam bike rental.
