Dutch bikes

TGI Thursday!

The saying goes TGIF, but I’m saying thank goodness it’s Thursday! What a gorgeous afternoon we had here in Amsterdam. I spent some time on the sunny terrace of the Eye. Might even got sunburned! But I love the ferry on sunny days. Where were you?

Hopefully the sun keeps up this magical work til Monday — the nations best holiday — King’s Day!



Sunny days make me feel good

Finally the first real spring days! And what do you do? Ride to your local park and chill out. At the Sarphati Park, in De Pijp, you could barely see the grass. Bikes and people everywhere. Oh ya.

Sunny days make me feel good
Sunny days make me feel good
Sunny days make me feel good
Sunny days make me feel good


Biking the bike

You see a lot of double bikers in town. Sometimes you just need to bring back your spare bike from the other side of town (after one too many drinks..*hiccup*!), or lend a bike to a friend. Let me tell you, it’s not easy to balance! It’s the next on my list of things to master. Holding an umbrella whilst cycling was my last successful feat..whoop!

Peddling to Bob Marley

Wasn’t today just amazing? On these types of days, I have Bob Marley stuck in my head. Though it was cold, the sun was shining and the weather was sweet. Makes you want to move your peddling feet. Sunday, here I am!

Where did Spring go?

The mist rolls in and back go our gloves and scarves. Let’s hope it’s just for a day! I will miss all the layers and a good animal print.

…9 days until Spring!

Bare hands on the handlebars!

The Dutch word for ‘gloves’ is my second all-time favourite Dutch word: handschoenen. Literally translated as ‘hand shoes.’ Yep, that’s what they are: shoes for the hands.

And just as I was getting quite comfortable toting these things around everywhere I go, it seems like it might be time to put them away (the jacket and scarf can stay handy though). Because 15ºC of sun calls for bare hands on the handlebars! Weeeeeeee!

Bare hands on the handlebars!


Rowing and Cycling..simultaneously!

You can pretty much do anything on a bike here, even sports it seems! This keen Coxswain motivates her rowers from a bicycle all the way down the Amstel. Talk about a multi-tasker!
Go girls go!
