Question for Our Dutch Friends

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Question for Our Dutch Friends

I'm thinking about flying to Amsterdam in September with my bike to go riding around the country. My current dilemna is what to do with my case or box once I'm there. Do train stations have lockers big enough to accomodate a case or an AirCaddy? An AirCaddy folds up into 31" x 40 " x 3" or approx. 80 x 102 x 8 cm.

Phone number for the tourist information office in the Amsterdam train station (Amsterdam Centraal) is +31 20 551 2512 - try giving them a call and they will hopefully direct you.

i'm not dutch, but i live here. does that count?

as far as luggage places in the train stations, yep they have them. i doubt they'd be big enough for a bike box, but it's probably an idea to call the number that haimtoeg left.
