If you follow us on Instagram, you might have seen this already. It got so much love on the social media networks that we thought it deserves its own post on the blog.

So, here you go. This is how it’s done.


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

Winter wonder blur

I caught these Amsterdammers going though the Rijksmuseum bike path, enjoying today’s sunny chill and riding fast through the tunnel. So many people out and about on their bikes today. Babies, bakfiets, lovers, and friends — I love that no matter the weather, we keep on peddling.

Sing along in style

This dad and son duo–with their matching bomber jackers–were singing one of the Dutch Sinterklaas songs while they ride down the street. Such a sweet moment to watch the two.

Bromance in the park

Nothing like a leisurely ride in the Vondelpark with a friend. And with style, might I add. Looking good boys!

3 ways to cycle together

This is what sunny Sunday afternoons are for: cycling together. And how do you cycle together? Ask any Amsterdammer and you’ll get a variety of options. Of course there’s the classic side-by-side cycle. Then there’s the other classic double: two people, one bike. Then there’s the more acrobatic version of doubling, standing on the back rack (popular among the youngsters).

What else? How else can you cycle together?

Sunday smiles

Sunday smiles

 

We all know that cycling makes us smile. Even in the winter cold, when you and a friend are side by side on bikes (maybe talking about last night’s escapades?) it’s like that chill running up your sleeves just disappears.

Or so we think, right?
