How to cycle chic, California style

Wear a Lakers jersey! Kobe Bryant’s no less. These types of things are not often spotted here on the streets (do people play basketball here?). But in gorgeous LA weather like this, go for it right?! This chick rocks it.

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!

Where did the summer go? Is it already almost over?

Goodbye summer?

Our days for wearing shorts and summer sandals are now counted…as we count down the days til the end of the summer. There’s an autumn chill already lurking around the corner. Are you excited for fall, sad to see the summer leave? I’m going to miss my shorts and flip-flops (and my tan), but fall colors in Amsterdam will easily bring a smile to my face.

Sunny Saturdays

Strappy sandal Sunday

Amsterdammers are loving their strappy sandals these days. It’s perfect weather for them: sunny skies and warm. Let the fresh air run through those toes!

Skies out, thighs out!

And wow, the skies this weekend were hot, hot, hot! This tropical weather come from out of nowhere–but I’ll take it. And top it with some short shorts, dresses, and skirts. The shorter the better these days!

Despite the heat and humidity, Amsterdammers were still on their bikes, showing off their stems–and of course full of style!
