blue sky, blue sea, blue cyclic! blue

10 o'clock this morning cyclic! set out for the beach. A nice 50km round trip. Blue skies and a cool breeze: perfect. Riding next to the red Koga on my 1979 'sit up and beg' dutch city bike, felt like riding alongside a champion in a beaten up Peugeot (1979). Doing my very best to keep up with the koga and feeling very important. Giving water or repairing a flat for the one true champ: a good friend on a racer. We stopped only for the obligatory coffee and apple tart and to admire the grace of a jumbo jet taking off from Amsterdam's airport, slowly rumbling over the nature reserve 'spaarnwoude'. A good day of riding, with a good amount of hanging out at the beach in between. As the afternoon came to an end, a cool mist rolled in, cooling our hot pink legs for the journey home. After perhaps too much sun, we came across a huge 'cyclic blue' building, only one thing to do, an impromptu performance/photoshoot. This reminded us that we still have s few cyclic t-shirts left. Contact us if you would like one.


Bicycle Monologue: Opening Act for Amsterdam Bicycle Film Festival

Vera donned her best wool jersey to take center stage alongside her finest bike 'red koga' at the opening of the Bicycle Film Festival in Amsterdam. Under the spotlight and in front of a huge audience Vera performed the first in a series of Bicycle monologues 'Mid-bike crisis'. The performance was a confession on what we the biking community all have in common: a special love for the bikes in our lives. All this coincided with the Giro Italia speed trials and the start of Sur Place.
