I'm planning a trip to AMS within the next 2 weeks. The only problem is that I haven't got a car so I will rent a bike somewhere. Is it actually possible to go around the airport by bike? Does anybody has a good roadmap?
Actually I know most of the spotting facilities at AMS but did new spots emerge at the new RWY/ are old spots still reachable at the parallel RWY?

How about taking the train to a nearby station where there maybe a rental shop and then cycle back to Schipol. You can rent in Amsterdam Centre, then maybe bring the bike back by train to a station nearer Schipol!

Taking the bike by train is certainly feasible but mind the following:
1) it's not allowed during morning and evening rushhour
2) get a ticket for the bike (available from ticket counters only, not from the machines). Ticket costs about €5
