Cycle Bikers

These two super chic biker couple take a cruise through Dam Square. Biker jackets, ripped jeans, black tandem..let’s roll!

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.

In search of the perfect pick-up line

What about:
“Hallo mooie dame, you’d look nice on the back of my bike.”

Or maybe:
“I really need a good rack for my bike, yours would be perfect.”

What do you think?

Dink, Double, lift, baggage drager..

Whichever way you like to call it, in my opinion it’s the only way to ride. We certainly have thought of multiple ways to get to liven up the journey to get to work!

Sunny Saturdays

Summer is in full swing in Amsterdam and everybody is getting to their cafe dates, festivals, beaches and museums by bike. The mornings are getting cooler but the afternoons the weather make for perfect cycling…so get out and enjoy the summer sunshine!

Togetherness..

Biking doesn’t always need to be a solo venture. So grab a pal and take them along with you on the back “baggage drager” style, mentor your little one or simply walk back from adventures side by side with your royal steed and best friend.

Bromance in the park

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

Bromance in the park


It’s a village, really

Amsterdam that is. You can bump (or ride) into someone you know at any moment. Those spontaneous meet ups on your bike are the best, right? Makes up for the random hail storm you just biked through seconds before.

I saw these guys chatting it up, laughing, and recounting some silly story. Some definite bromance going on. Has this happened to you? How many friends have you seen randomly on a single ride or in a day?

It's a village, really


Park love!

It’s official: Spring is in the air! My favorite day of the year. The first really nice day that you don’t need gloves or wool socks.

Lovely 17-degree sunny weather brought all of Amsterdam to the Vondel Park for some much-deserved sun-on-skin action. Ahhhh doesn’t it feel so good. The park was full of people and their bikes thrown anywhere. It’s like as soon as they got to a sufficiently grassy and sunny spot–the kickstands came down, pants rolled up, and blankets strewn. Dust off those sunglasses (or just squint like a real Amsterdammer) and pop the prosecco, because spring is here.

Park love!

Thank you Momentum Magazine!

Thank you Momentum Magazine!

Since December passed us by so quickly we are just now getting to share some big news. US-based urban cycling mag, Momentum Magazine, featured our very own Amsterdam Cycle Chic girls in their December issue. Joni and I wrote a brief article with tips about the best cycling city in the world, including a few pointers on “how to cycle like an Amsterdammer”. In the 2-page spread they also featured photos by us — and Aude’s shot of me for last year’s Cyclist of the Month was chosen for the cover! You can still download the December issue here.

We love opportunities like this. Sharing Amsterdam’s unique and amazing  — and all so normal at the same time — bike ‘culture’ with the world is one reason this blog exists. So keep on cycling chic, Amsterdam!

Thank you Momentum Magazine!
