Hundreds of bicyclists pour through Amsterdam museum

Hundreds of bicycles queue to pass through Rijksmuseum, in Amsterdam on Monday, 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.
