Summer cycling

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.

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!

Summer in full swing

Summer is in full swing. It is hot and riding your bike along the canals is thus even cooler than usual. But, please do not fade into daydreaming to soon and stay aware of the other season’s symptom: tourists! With their heads in their maps, looking for Amsterdam’s highlights, they might not be aware of your arrival. That is a shame. So here is my plea to all you Amsterdam cyclists out there: please add some more local flavour to our dear tourist’s experience: ring your bike bell politely in advance and just smile and wave while you pass them. Benefits for you: smiles and plenty of admiration for your looks/ localness/ sturdy handling of the steering bar (Please cross out those not applicable!)

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!

Togetherness..

Biking doesn’t always need to be a solo venture. So grab a pal and take them along with you on the back “baggage drager” style, mentor your little one or simply walk back from adventures side by side with your royal steed and best friend.

Fijne weekend!

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!
