Bike riding in Helsinki
Our hotel had these adorable little bikes, and they let us use them for free. We spent hours with thousands of other people ride their bikes through the city. It was so neat - and the good news, I didn't fall off or get hit by a car. :) We rode up to Olympic Stadium, the Rock Church, down by the harbor, along the shores, and ate lunch at Cafe Ursula. Helsinki isn't very big and you can see so much in just a couple hours on a bike!
This city reminded me of Amsterdam, Stockholm, and so many others that rely on bikes for their main form of transportation. Although, I don't know how they do it during winter time!
