Cycling in dresses

Amsterdam tip #36

Whats the first thing you should do when you’re invited into a canal house in Amsterdam? Especially one on the third floor? 

Run to the window and admire the view! First the gables. Then the rooftops and roof gardens. And then the street below. (Then obsessively take photos of people biking by.)

Sarphatistraat is one of Amsterdam’s main streets. Even if the city is known for all its narrow streets, canals and bridges, some streets are wide and full of trees like in other European capitals. Do you recognize which part is is?


Flower girl

Oh how typical: a lovely lass wearing flip flops and a dress, carrying groceries and flowers on a regular old Omafiets. Don’t you love Amsterdam?

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!

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!

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!

Thank you Momentum Magazine!

Thank you Momentum Magazine!

Since December passed us by so quickly we are just now getting to share some big news. US-based urban cycling mag, Momentum Magazine, featured our very own Amsterdam Cycle Chic girls in their December issue. Joni and I wrote a brief article with tips about the best cycling city in the world, including a few pointers on “how to cycle like an Amsterdammer”. In the 2-page spread they also featured photos by us — and Aude’s shot of me for last year’s Cyclist of the Month was chosen for the cover! You can still download the December issue here.

We love opportunities like this. Sharing Amsterdam’s unique and amazing  — and all so normal at the same time — bike ‘culture’ with the world is one reason this blog exists. So keep on cycling chic, Amsterdam!

Thank you Momentum Magazine!
