Rock it!

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!

SAIL Amsterdam 2015

From 19-23 August 2015, Amsterdam’s shores are host to an amazing event, SAIL. Sail visits Amsterdam only once every 5 years and is the largest free public event in the world. Everyone on bike, foot, car and boat gather in Amsterdam to watch this amazing spectacle. Today we wave goodbye to 600 gorgeous tall ships, heritage and naval boats and beautiful replicas from our harbours in Amsterdam. They travelled from all around the globe to be here. With huge sailing ships and local boats parading down the catwalk of the Ij waterway, fireworks each night and events all day there was a lot to see so we thought we would share it all with you.

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!

Amsterdam tip #36

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.)
