Cycling down a Dutch Mountain. The only hills we have are bridges. There are a few steep ones along the Amstel crossing the 'grachten'. #herengracht #amstel #bikeams #cyclechic #amscyclechic #amsterdamcitycentre #dutchmountains #Dutchies #dutchmen #racingbike #sunglasses #sunnyday #cycling #bicicletas #velo #grachten #amsterdamsegrachten #canaldistrict #amsterdamcanals #bridge #amsterdambridge

Are you already following us on Instagram? You should, if you want to learn more about Amsterdam’s cycling culture and enjoy the diversity of cyclists and bikes in Amsterdam’s streets. Every month we will post the most liked Instagram shots here on our blog.
Sometimes you need a little break from the city..doesn’t mean you can’t take your wheels! The gorgeous town of Zaanse Schans is a perfectly picturesque town to visit and ride around in nature. Pack a lunch, take a camera and see a little bit of what our Dutch nature has to offer. 250 years ago the windmills here formed the first industrial site in the world and some of the mills are still functioning! Happy cycling!
We all have busy lives and most of us are stuck behind the wheel on our way home from work. In Amsterdam we like to do things a little different, no matter how busy it is you can almost always guarantee the travel time will be the same. Now we can’t use that age-old excuse for why we are late! A flat tyre maybe? What other reasons could we possibly have?
Check out this huge bag she has! Could it be any bigger? It’s almost as if she herself could fit inside it. I wonder what she’s got in there that requires such a massive tote….
It’s always nice to catch the last bit of sunshine of the day. Especially when it’s with your buddy, cycling side by side.
If we take those pictures as a generality I would defintely recommend to carry them on your bikeluggagerack… on the back! Especially if it is windy …
You know the cliché that dogs and their owner often look alike. Well this is the case I guess, and my question is who’s the boss then?!
Uniform of this sunny day: black- black … clothes- sunglasses!
Beijing-based website OVIEW360 contacted us. This fancy Chinese online magazine freshly started in 2014. They provide detailed coverage of European Architecture, Interior, Industry design, Building products, and Travel & Life Style to Chinese viewers. Although there are many such websites in Europe, OVIEW360 is almost the only one in China!
OVIEW360’s European editor, Fanpei, wrote a great article on “Dutch Bike Culture” in their “Travel & Life Style” section, see here:
关于Amsterdam Cycle Chic：起源于丹麦首都哥本哈根的自行车文化。2007年记者，电影导演兼摄影师的Mikael Colville－Anderson以博客形式发表了哥本哈根人们使用自行车的照片，他的博客启发了全球自行车运动，展示给世界骑自行车可以是非常时尚的并成为日常生活中的一部分。Amsterdamcyclechic 既是全球自行车运动的一部分。
Well, I am telling you the article is great, not that I speak chinese, I trust Fanpei who confirmed me the translation was as follow:
“It’s a common site to see citizens traversing the city with panniers fully loaded, a child on the back, and the cyclist grasping anything from a framed artwork to a bouquet of flowers. Likewise, more and more visitors to Amsterdam want to experience the freedom afforded by a life on two wheels. It’s for good reason! Cycling is the easiest way to get around and see the city. Amsterdam is home to approximately 880,000 bicycles, which is slightly more than the population of the city itself. (original text from Iam amsterdam, translated and edited by oview360)”
They asked us permission to use some of our pictures. They have choosen themselves and picked some of our last instant classics:
