Inspired by Copenhagen Cycle Chic

Cycle to the music!

Cyclists in Amsterdam do a lot on their bike; they eat their breakfast, drink a coffee and chat to a friend. But, what they maybe love the most, is to listen to their favourite music while cycling through Amsterdam’s streets. After a long day of work, it is their moment for themselves, they dream away, think about a great party they had, a new love in their lives or they carefully listen to the lyrics. Sometimes you hear them sing along, shake their hips when listening to latin sounds or move their hand following the rhythm of hip-hop beats. Big headphones are trendy and actually come in handy with the weather turning colder.

    You guys in your country don’t get a ticket from cops for cycling and listening to music ‘earphones’ at the same time?

    • No, we don’t just like pedestrians and car drivers we are allowed to listen to music. Thanks to the good infrastructure!
