Urban style

Do you stop at *all* red lights?

The other day I was riding down Vijzelstraat towards the city centre. As I was approaching the Prinsengracht (a one-way and precisely here), I slowed down, looked for on-coming cars and bikes from the left and right… and kept riding.

Yes, I knowingly rode through a red light. In Amsterdam. The capital of red-light-running. I know, that doesn’t make it ok.

A police car followed me, pulled me over, and proceeded to lecture me about how it’s unsafe, especially “because a police car was parked at the intersection.”

And then he actually asked me if he could give me a fine of €97. I had already argued my side by saying I felt safe, so I didn’t argue further. But could I have said no? I wonder.

So watch out Amsterdammers. They’re out to get ya!

Do you stop at all red lights?


Bundle up!

It’s cold out there! But the cold doesn’t stop Amsterdammers from getting on their bikes. Or looking chic.

Winter wonder blur

I caught these Amsterdammers going though the Rijksmuseum bike path, enjoying today’s sunny chill and riding fast through the tunnel. So many people out and about on their bikes today. Babies, bakfiets, lovers, and friends — I love that no matter the weather, we keep on peddling.

Looking dashing through the snow..

Well, unfortunately we won’t be getting snow for Christmas this year but we will be dashing around town collecting our ‘Kerstboom’ (Christmas Tree), Christmas dinner ingredients and Turkeys! Nothing is too much for the locals here balancing their festive decorations and babies in perfect harmony.

We at Amsterdam Cycle Chic want to wish all our fabulous readers a wonderful Christmas and look forward to sharing more Amsterdam cyclists with you in 2015!

Wintertime style

Amsterdammers know how to dress for the cold, the wet, the cloudy, and the ugly. And they do it in style!

Happy Monday!

Behind the street cleaner in the bike lane. Stopped at a red light. Eager to get to work. Looking up at the gray sky. Is it going to start raining? Stylish nonetheless!

Scarf-ing up fall

Yep it’s that time again–dig out your scarves, hats, and long coats … because, ladies and gents, it’s fall.

Backpack style

Happy Monday! Backpacks seem to be a must-have accessory these days. This vrouw was ahead of the rush hour hoard sporting a stylish one. Where can I get one?
