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

[insert Dutch windmills and bicycles here]

It’s Summertime here so we all like to go on an adventure when it’s warm. Kinderdijk is a gorgeous picture-postcard place to visit just 1.5hours from Amsterdam and it’s bike heaven! Flat terrain, windmils, canals, green grass and fresh air..ahh! So go grab a bike and head out on an adventure..fingers crossed you’ll have the wind at your back!

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.

Riding through the fields

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!

Peak hour looks a little different in Amsterdam

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?

Schools out

When I was growing up we had to wear uniforms to school. In Amsterdam these girls are super happy to display their own threads on their way home from school…with bikes to match!
