You may have seen some of these guys and girls around town, collecting tourists or saving a soggy rain-soaked biker. They are the bike taxis and are also part of our Amsterdam street scene! They must be super fit, from riding all day collecting passengers – and must thankful we have no hills and tiny bridges. Seems like a more eco-friendly choice when it comes to public transport.
The Dutch have a great sense of style. They love matching their outfits. This cyclist goes one step further, and matches his bike, bag, clothing and shoes. He’s ‘on board’ with a lot more than that ferry!
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.
This cyclist is super matchy-matchy, in his double yellow in fall! It’s also a great colour for staying visible on the streets of Amsterdam, on those gloomy days.
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?
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.
Sunshine, festivals and Sundays. What more can we say? De Parade just started in Amsterdam and its the perfect climate for cycling over to Martin Luther Kingpark and checking out this super cool travelling theatre..all the parks are full!
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.
