Hundreds of bicyclists pour through Dutch museum - Article Photos 1/3

Hundreds of bicycles queue to pass through Rijksmuseum, in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Monday May 13, 2013, signaling the end of more than a decade of efforts by cyclists to ensure a passageway that runs under and through the Rijksmuseum would remain open to bike traffic. The museum, which houses masterpieces by Rembrandt van Rijn and Vincent van Gogh, among others, opened last month after a 10-year renovation. Architects and successive museum directors had opposed allowing bikes through, and a local government tried to have them barred on safety grounds. But in a city that has more bicycles than people, the bike lobby prevailed. (AP Photo/Peter Dejong)
