This is part of ongoing coverage of the Green Lane Project/Bikes Belong Netherlands Study Tour.

You’ve probably heard about how in the great European bike cities like Amsterdam people wear “regular clothes” when they ride. I’m not sure what that means to most people; but to me it meant they didn’t were lycra or other special “cycling clothes.” What I didn’t realize is that their clothes are far from “regular”. They ride in some of the most stylish outfits I’ve ever seen on two wheels. People in Copenhagen dressed very well; but the attire in Amsterdam has more panache. I found the styles really amazing. And to see them on people riding bikes was frankly jaw-dropping.

I thought it’d fun to share a selection of images from my Amsterdam photo gallery so you can see what I mean…
