Dappermarkt night

Holiday lights warm up the streets of Oost! Even on a rainy night, these folks are flying along Javastraat on their way home from work, heading out with friends or just running errands.

Parkside riding

It is the most beautiful time to ride at the moment… fresh breeze and a little sunshine. Get out on your bike, and head to your favourite park. Like ours, Vondel Park.

I have to say I prefer much more to cycle than to walk..

I am not a fashionista, but I have to say I am dreaming of a nice black leather jacket!

Rock it!

rocker by aude

by Aude

Everything fits in his look combined with the bike, until your eyes reach this small detail: a little present that this rough rocker holds in his right hand. How sweet is that! Where is he going? I would say the birthday party of his 4 years old niece?! Love it!

Bike parking

Want to know how to create more space? Less cars and more bikes. This bike park just behind Amsterdam Centraal train station is where locals can park their bikes if they want to catch a train or a ferry. It’s super handy and takes up hardly any space. Even better, it’s situated on a barge right on the water!

Bye bye carparks..hello fresh air and cycling as a beautiful and environmentally-friendly life choice.

Step 1 – Ride up to the ferry

Step 2 – Pull up to the bike park

Steps 3, 4 & 5 – Pull down a spare bike space and park your precious royal steed in his stables

Step 6 – Catch the train or ferry

Step 7 – Collect your bike back

Step 8 – Ride Away back home from your journey!

Summer in the city

Yes! It’s here! Summer. We only get 10 days of sunshine a year (or at least it feels like that). But when those precious days arrive, we head straight to the park with friends. Pack that portable BBQ into your bicycle crate, grab some beers and bike carefully along the cobblestones streets until you hit your favourite park.

These guys has a bike converted to a DJ sound station which happily entertained the surrounding picnic-ers, combined with their dance moves.
