How to bike in the rain

We don’t need much gear for cycling in the rain – maybe a poncho if you remember to grab it as you rush out the door. Sometimes I see rainpants. Or huge capes.

Umbrellas are pretty common too – again, if you remember it. This little girl has it figured out:

  1. get comfy in the cargo bike
  2. shield yourself from the rain with a bright and super cute umbrella
  3. relax and let mom do all the work

A bike full of wood

I can only imagine this conversation: Hey man, what are you going to do with all that wood? I don’t know, gonna make something cool. Maybe a nice fence for your garden? For sure.

Seriously, what’s this guy going to do with all those branches? Obviously he just found them and loaded them up on his bike – otherwise he would have a proper transport method, right? Who knows! Oh Amsterdam. How I love you.

3 bikes that made me smile

This May is very grey. It is cold, rainy and windy. Luckily some people make the city less grey by pimping their bikes. They paint them, decorate them with flowers, or other objects.
These are my three favourite bikes of this month:

Bicycle decorated with rubber duckies

Rubber Duckie Bike

Amsterdam bike

Colourful Tape Bike

Amsterdam Bakfiets
