It is just impossible to cycle incognito in Amsterdam. I mean, as a Mum or Dad!
I collect all those pictures to illustrate my observation :
… or Mummys : For everyone you are a parent first!
You will never have the student look anymore ;)
Those pictures are more representative of today: incognito under poncho!
You hear a lot of people singing as they zip past you in Amsterdam. Some know the tunes from their head and others sport rather fashionable ears around town..your thoughts? Unsafe or just a cool way to get into the X-Factor?
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.)
After a big Gay Pride weekend the locals are soaking up the late afternoon sun and biking home…goodnight Amsterdam.
Grab your bike and your love and head out to your favorite vista for tonight’s sunset. It’s bound to be a good one.
This is why I love cycling in Amsterdam – even the suits are doing it! And there’s no need for an iron or a dry clean: just let the evening breeze ease the wrinkles and sweat from the day.
We here at Amsterdam Cycle Chic are lucky to come across cool single articles of clothing on our locals..hip shoes, nice jacket, groovy hair.
But sometimes you come across an entire ensemble which blows your mind. This cool Papa and his daughter need a boogie nights soundtrack as they buzz along the Dutch streets.
We’re talking serious seventies fashion combinations here: beige corduroy suit, double drop earrings, and silver undercut (and top-knot), aviator spectacles and oxfords. Bam!
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!
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!
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!
