All the happy bikers in Amsterdam

One of the main things that makes Amsterdam so awesome must be the bicycles. It looks like bikes took over the place, and that they make cars look like they belong to another decade. All the happy bikers in the world are gathered in this one place. Let's be honest, this must be some kind of heaven.

But it's not just bikes. The Dutch know how to bike and especially how to design them. I wondered if there is some sort of code, that only allows you to bike around on pretty bicycles. In Belgium, we all drive our granny's bikes. Old, broken or ugly, it doesn't really matter. As long as your car is shiny, you'll be fine. It is like the opposite thing is happening in Amsterdam. Everyone has shiny new bikes with extraordinary designs, and they're obviously proud to drive it around. And yes, why wouldn't they be? Riding around on their pretty bikes makes them fit and I bet it makes them happy!

Let me share some of the beauties found on my little trip there. Bikes I can only dream of straight out of the city I am dreaming of. :)

  1. Heerlijke blogpost! En 't is waar; in Belgiƫ rijden we allemaal met zo'n oeroude fiets rond (tenzij de hipsterkes misschien), zo jammer! (En weeral zo'n leuke foto's!)

  2. Mooie foto's! Ja, Amsterdam is echt een stad waar de fietsers overheersen. Ik heb er acht jaar lang met plezier rondgereden, wel op 5 verschillende fietsen omdat ze ook vrij regelmatig worden gestolen ;). Maar leuk he, die veelzijdigheid!
