Tandem style

Tandem Biking

Amsterdam is one of the most diverse bicycle cities in the world. Bikes of all shapes and sizes wind through the canals and cobblestoned streets each day. A rarity in this jungle of spokes and tyres is the Tandem bicycle, it’s always special seeing one. I mean who wouldn’t want double the pedal-power getting to your destination? Never leave your partner behind at that crossing again!

3 ways to cycle together

This is what sunny Sunday afternoons are for: cycling together. And how do you cycle together? Ask any Amsterdammer and you’ll get a variety of options. Of course there’s the classic side-by-side cycle. Then there’s the other classic double: two people, one bike. Then there’s the more acrobatic version of doubling, standing on the back rack (popular among the youngsters).

What else? How else can you cycle together?

Park love!

It’s official: Spring is in the air! My favorite day of the year. The first really nice day that you don’t need gloves or wool socks.

Lovely 17-degree sunny weather brought all of Amsterdam to the Vondel Park for some much-deserved sun-on-skin action. Ahhhh doesn’t it feel so good. The park was full of people and their bikes thrown anywhere. It’s like as soon as they got to a sufficiently grassy and sunny spot–the kickstands came down, pants rolled up, and blankets strewn. Dust off those sunglasses (or just squint like a real Amsterdammer) and pop the prosecco, because spring is here.

Park love!

Park love!
Park love!


Sunday smiles

Sunday smiles

 

We all know that cycling makes us smile. Even in the winter cold, when you and a friend are side by side on bikes (maybe talking about last night’s escapades?) it’s like that chill running up your sleeves just disappears.

Or so we think, right?

Lovebird dialogue #17

Lovebird dialogue #17

Boy: Thank god the rain stopped!
Girl: Don’t you just loooove this Dutch weather?
Boy: Totally. But not as much as I love you, you cute little pumpkin!
Girl: [Laughs]
Boy: No, seriously, you look like a pumpkin with your orange pants!


Lovely leaves

It’s really fall now, right? I love this time of year in Amsterdam. The colors, fresh air, and just a little bit of sun. A perfect day for a ride along the canals. Don’t you think?

A lazy Sunday

A lazy ride
When you get tired of riding your bike, what do you do? Looks like this gal picked up a cute guy boat and threw her bike aboard, away they went down the canals. How romantic!

Picnic daysThe Dutch take picnicking to a whole new level. Once the sun comes out, it’s like entire kitchens are brought to the park! And the best way to get to the park is of course by bike! The Vondelpark was packed with picnickers this weekend. Where were you picnicking this weekend?

a friendly Sunday

Seems like he’s got the better end of the stick though, right?

 

 


I can’t get enough of you Amsterdam!

Romantic Sunday

Japanese scenery

Amsterdam cycle chic
Japanese painting is one of the oldest and most highly refined arts, encompassing a wide variety of genres and styles. This idyllic scene, shot at the heart of Amsterdam ( in the Vondelpark) took me away to ancient Japan for a couple of seconds: Geisha-style knotted hair, a touch of red on the lips, and …isn’t that the shadow of a cherry blossom tree?
