Ring Ring… bike delivery!

Saw this lovely burst of colour whizzing by, delivering a parcel, and I just had to stop him! He spent the day riding through snow, sleet, rain and finally some sunshine. Didn’t seem to phase himūüôā
…Go DHL!

Double Dutch

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.


Original Amsterdam. Original cool.

This guy is 100% Amsterdam. Riding one-handed along the beautiful Amstel, cruising with the dog, black panniers flapping in the breeze, and sporting the tweed and the slicked-back silver hair.

Seriously Amsterdam. Seriously cool.

Black is the new black

Although¬†some Amsterdammers are brightening the urban landscape¬†with their turquoise delight, on this dark and stormy Friday others are more into keeping it dark and classic. We can’t have enough¬†black coats, jeans, and boots to match our black bikes.

Happy Friday!

Turquoise delight!

It’s officially the cold, grey, rainy season here in the ‘Dam, so it’s a breath of fresh air to see some colour around. This girl is rocking some turquoise locks, and has a cool bike to match! Even her backpack is smilingūüôā

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

Dappermarkt night

Holiday lights warm up the streets of Oost! Even on a rainy night, these folks are flying along Javastraat on their way home from work, heading out with friends or just running errands.

Where did Spring go?

The mist rolls in and back go our¬†gloves and scarves. Let’s hope it’s just for a day! I will miss all the¬†layers and a good animal print.

…9 days until Spring!

Bare hands on the handlebars!

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 15¬ļC of sun calls for bare hands on the handlebars! Weeeeeeee!
