San Sebastian the biking city

As an Amsterdammer visiting the northern Spanish town of San Sebastian over the weekend I was amazed at the abundance of bikers throughout their small city. Many locals and also visitors to this beautiful beach town sported their wheels and even zoomed along the sand! As the town has 3 beaches the best way to travel to each is by their beachside bike lanes….go San Sebastian for having the number one way to work off those delicious pintxos!

Marie Claire Brasil

We are very happy and proud to feature in de August’ edition of Marie Claire Brasil . The special coverage “Eu e minha bike” (me and my bike) is showing how popular cycling is in Europe. In the article Mikael Colville-Andersen is interviewed. Mikael is the founder of the Cycle Chic Republic and of the first Cycle Chic blog: Copenhagen Cycle Chic. The article is about how important the bike is for women. During the past centuries the bike has meant a lot for women; more independence, more comfortable clothes and daily physical activity. Today, in Amsterdam, the majority of cyclists is female. You can see them cycling through our streets, each in their own style.

Amsterdam Cycle Chic happily contributed to this article with a picture of Amsterdam Cycle Chic’s Meredith, photographed by Aude.

Quote by Meredith: “Aqui as crianças crescem em bicicleta. É maravilhoso não se preocupar com os seguro, o preço da gasolina ou tíquetes de estacionamento. Nossa única preocupação é se os pneus estão em boas condições.” (Here kids grow up on a bike. It is great not to worry about insurance, the price of petrol or parking tickets. Our only worry is the state of our tires.)

Dink, Double, lift, baggage drager..

Whichever way you like to call it, in my opinion it’s the only way to ride. We certainly have thought of multiple ways to get to liven up the journey to get to work!

Race against time

Some people pass the time, others make the best of it. Racers have made a comeback and even though those skinny little tyres don’t agree with the width of those tram tracks and cobblestones, they are a super fun way to get around. This Amsterdammer is just soaking up the sun on a chilly summers day, next to his wheels just waiting for a friend..

This is what we call a good friend, I guess. On his way to help out a mate with a flat tire. And looking good by the way!


Sunny Saturdays

Summer is in full swing in Amsterdam and everybody is getting to their cafe dates, festivals, beaches and museums by bike. The mornings are getting cooler but the afternoons the weather make for perfect cycling…so get out and enjoy the summer sunshine!
