Cycling is very popular in the Netherlands. There are various special rules and several kinds of facilities for cyclists. For example, there are special cycling paths and separate traffic lights for cyclists.
Rotterdam also has several places with secured bicycle sheds, for example in the centre of Rotterdam (Meent), near the library and at various stations. Please note that cyclists do not have right of way over motorized vehicles, unless stated otherwise. Motorways and highways are closed for cyclists. You can hire a bike from special private companies, for instance at the Central Station.
