Top 5 things to look forward to in 2016

Best wishes for 2016!

2015 was a great year. As an ode to all the fantastic shots our team captured in 2015 and all our loyal followers, we’ve put together a short list of the top 5 things to look forward to this year in Amsterdam – doubled up with our most popular blog and Instagram posts of 2015.

1. Several days (at least) of non-stop sun sometime between March 23 and September 17. Otherwise, don’t forget to smile while you squint and bear the rainy weather.

2. Doubling up with a lover (or a stranger).  The best part about getting around in this city is pairing up – on one bike is cozy, but side-by-side works just as well. Our cyclists of the month from February love doubling!

3. Wearing black, preferably a leather jacket as well.    black leather jacket by aude

4. Spotting adorable children and their (stylish) mamas.  This black and white made waves on Facebook and Instagram. And photos of our own Aude (who now has two little ones) was the most-seen post of the year!

5. Discovering a new favorite corner in this fantastic city. By bike, of course! Maybe a new cafe or a nice view – where ever it is, let it be all yours.

A huge thanks to all our readers and followers this year! We are grateful for your loyalty and we wouldn’t still be around if it wasn’t for you. From all of us at Amsterdam Cycle Chic, happy new year!


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

Hockey Sunday

Today was the perfect day for hockey. Amsterdamse Bos is a short bike-ride from the city centre of Amsterdam – and you are transported to another world when you reach there. Hockey season has been open for a few weeks now, and today we had summer back from just one day. Perfect weather for outdoor sports!

Summer’s last days

Rain every day and then one little pocket of sunshine… and it’s shorts and ponytails again.

Cycle Chic in Buenos Aires

In May the museo de los ninos (children’s museum) in Buenos Aires launched an exhibition called “Amo la bici” which means nothing less than “I love the bike”. The invitation was illustrated by one of my pictures featuring Joni, her son and my daughter:
invitacionArgentinian children could use one of the 10 Shimano bikes and cycle the route installed in the museum. There were guides helping the kids, especially the ones that had never ride a bicycle! Exactly the way Dutch children learn to cycle in the Netherlands: museo ninos-10
There were pictures of cycling children all along the route. They were taken by us in Amsterdam and by Michael Colville and his cycle chic team in Copenhagen: museo ninos-4
museo ninos-6museo ninos-3And there were of course some of our instant classic pictures: Back to the 80’s, children cycling side by side, Ed coolest Opa ever, but also an exclusive picture of my husband and our daughter on one of her first rides:museo ninos-2 The museum organised many workshops, games and other activities in the museum around the theme of cycling. For the ones speaking spanish, here are some fun facts about cycling in Amsterdam: museo ninos-9The exhibition was such a big hit that it will be moved to the children’s museum of Rosario in October.

Thank you to Daiana and Silvia from the NIBA institute for this wonderful initiative, the feedback and the pictures.
