Bromance in the park

Nothing like a leisurely ride in the Vondelpark with a friend. And with style, might I add. Looking good boys!

Double Dutch

When it comes to cycling the Dutch love to double up. Especially on chilly, wintery days like today, it seems like the only way to get around is to jump on the back on your friend’s bike and snuggle up close.  Or hop on a tandem like the adorable cutie-pie in the last pic! Don’t lose those flowers!

Check out those triceps!

Watch out for this gun show! And the pink fenders! I’m totally digging this guy’s style. Just heading home from the gym with his tight tee, bright Nikes, and an old, scratched, pink ladies bike. Typical.

Check out those triceps!

Omafiets

Amsterdam Cycle Chic

Anyone up for short Dutch lesson? I already told you at the time what was an “Opa“. Now let’s talk about the “Oma”: it is the grandma. You may think I love old people, and I do. But I am not the one who invented the expression “Omafiets”. “Fiets” means bike in Dutch so “Omafiets” is a grandma bike. And trust me the Omafiets is the fancy old classic that most of people in Amsterdam are riding on.

A pink pants weekend!

Did you see the Pride parade on the canals this Saturday? Those boats were incredible! In between the fabulous drag shows, feathered boas, winged costumes, glitter and glam–some people managed to keep their pants on this weekend at Amsterdam Pride. And when they did, it was nothing but pink!

Nevermind this sweltering heat, who doesn’t love a good-looking suit? With a beer, phone, briefcase–doesn’t matter, as long as it looks good. And on a bike, of course!

Boy in the back seat

Getting your two kids on your bike can be quite a balancing act. Check out how this dad gets his son in the back seat. He clearly does this more often!

Classy Sunday

Biking to the ball

Where is this well-clad couple heading? The opera? The ball? A wedding? Where ever it is, they’re getting there in style.

Sunglasses are sexy!

Sunglasses Sunday!
Sunglasses Sunday!
Sunglasses Sunday!
Is it finally time to (really) break out the sun wear? To roll up our sleeves? Leave the heavy coats at home? Wait, wait–maybe even gloves too?!? These Amsterdammers think so. I was convinced spring was never going to come, but with this sunny, 20-degree weather, I think it’s finally here. It’s definitely time to celebrate with a breezy bike ride through my favorite cycling city!

So get out those sexy sunglasses, I think there’s more sun in store…
