Gameboy

Just when you think your weary legs can’t cycle anymore … you spot what we like to call a ‘Chic’er’ – a super chic cyclist with some fashion on board! Gameboy backpack + faux fur coat + pink gloves and grooving to tunes, en route to somewhere fabulous for sure. Arriving with style people!

Fall racer

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.

Ambidexterity

When I moved here, I was just hoping to stay on my bike and ride in a straight line. Time sure brings confidence!

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

Last Saturday, I bumped into these guys in the middle of the night. They looked so fantastic and were so happy to take the pose for our blog.

Did they you inspired by the concert of Kiss, last week in the ziggo dome, or did you just choose this look like I am choosing my boring little black dress? In any case, it was nice to meet you in the middle of crazy Amsterdam!


The conversation

Some people are gifted in the art of conversation. And they excel in it. Nothing would hinder them, not even a trip through the city. When you get them started, you can’t get them stop it. They are great company, unless they are too tall, they could be an obstacle to your driving capacity!

Rowing and Cycling..simultaneously!

You can pretty much do anything on a bike here, even sports it seems! This keen Coxswain motivates her rowers from a bicycle all the way down the Amstel. Talk about a multi-tasker!
Go girls go!
