The Dam Biker #1 Girl Plus Teddy Bear

Posted: March 22nd, 2010 | Author: admin | Filed under: The Dam Biker | Tags: , , | 11 Comments »

Amsterdam has often been titled the Bike Capital of the World with 40% of all traffic movements by bicycle. The ubiquity of bicycles lined up against every building and the number of cyclists on the road is probably the most unique element of this city. The bicycle is a part of the Dutch identity and Amsterdam truly embraces bike culture. When I first moved here, I was so amazed by all the different types of cyclists riding in this town. It is fascinating seeing whole families being carried on one bike or people moving their furniture on the back of their bikes. The bicycle is by far my favorite part of living in Amsterdam.

So, inspired by this bike culture along with the coolest blog Copenhagen Cycle Chic, I have decided to post weekly photos of the interesting bikers in this city. This first picture was taken when I first moved to Amsterdam. She is out of focus but this is a little girl riding alone with her teddy bear in Vondelpark. I can’t handle the cuteness of this city sometimes.

    Hi there

    I look forward to your future fietsen photies :) The bike-ccentric life in Amsterdam is what I love most about it too! I’m currently sorting out moving over from the UK. I can’t wait to ride my OWN bike around town :)

    Regards
    Neil

    Amsterdam is a great city with wonderful places and added to that was strolling your bike to explore the city. Bike is part of their lives.
