August Amstel Day

Please join me for a cycle on a sunny day in August along the river Amstel.

Bikes on the bridge

A typical sight for the end of August and the beginning of the new academic year; the new sorority girls all paint their bikes in the same colour.

Guys on bikes

Just checking where their friends are so that they can join them for a beer on a sunny terrace.

Amsterdammers taking it easy

In one week we had many festivities in Amsterdam; on the 30th of April Queensday and the coronation of the new king; on the 4th of May the Remembrance of the Death at Dam square and on the 5th of May both Liberation Day and the championship celebrations of Amsterdam’s football club Ajax.

After all these celebrations, with many people in the streets from all over the world, we are now taking it easy. Just enjoying the city and reliving about all the beautiful festivities.

Crossing the bridge

The Amstel river was full of boats. Not only on Queensday Amsterdammers love to go dancing and drinking on their boats. Also Liberation Day is a busy day for the river. Every year there is a concert on the river. King Willem-Alexander, Queen Máxima and former Queen Beatrix came to listen and many Amsterdammers joined them on their boats. Now rest has returned, this guy only saw one sightseeing boat when he crossed the famous skinny bridge.

Sunny cycling in the Vondelpark

On Queensday the Vondelpark is full of family fun. The park is turned into a big freemarket place. There are many activities for kids like face-painting, games and musical and theatrical performances. But also in the most famous park of Amsterdam, rest has returned. This guy is enjoying an easy cycle through the park.

Mobile and connected

The first thing citizens from Amsterdam ask themselves when they get on their bike is; What phone calls do I have to make? While cycling to work or back home again, or on your way to a bar, it’s a perfect time to call your friends.
