Wasn’t today just amazing? On these types of days, I have Bob Marley stuck in my head. Though it was cold, the sun was shining and the weather was sweet. Makes you want to move your peddling feet. Sunday, here I am!
The Dutch word for ‘gloves’ is my second all-time favourite Dutch word: handschoenen. Literally translated as ‘hand shoes.’ Yep, that’s what they are: shoes for the hands.
And just as I was getting quite comfortable toting these things around everywhere I go, it seems like it might be time to put them away (the jacket and scarf can stay handy though). Because 15ºC of sun calls for bare hands on the handlebars! Weeeeeeee!
Oh what a year!
We would like to thank all of our followers and fellow cyclists around the world and wish you all a wonderful 2015!
Gold bike, blue hair. Love it.
When the sun is shining like this, it’s time to dig out those shorts (again) and wear some sunny yellow shoes to match the lovely weather!
“Hallo mooie dame, you’d look nice on the back of my bike.”
“I really need a good rack for my bike, yours would be perfect.”
What do you think?
As an Amsterdammer visiting the northern Spanish town of San Sebastian over the weekend I was amazed at the abundance of bikers throughout their small city. Many locals and also visitors to this beautiful beach town sported their wheels and even zoomed along the sand! As the town has 3 beaches the best way to travel to each is by their beachside bike lanes….go San Sebastian for having the number one way to work off those delicious pintxos!
Wear a Lakers jersey! Kobe Bryant’s no less. These types of things are not often spotted here on the streets (do people play basketball here?). But in gorgeous LA weather like this, go for it right?! This chick rocks it.
Oh how typical: a lovely lass wearing flip flops and a dress, carrying groceries and flowers on a regular old Omafiets. Don’t you love Amsterdam?
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!
