Hell's Angels

Last night, Oncle René found out that Amsterdam has its own kind of Hell's Angels. The kind of bikers with leather jacket, tattoo, bandanna on the head  and the whiskey flask in the back pocket. Some night you rather want to stay home than walking in the dark streets of Amsterdam. Hell's Angels I tell you.

Summer times

Best times to cruise by bike in the dutch countryside, time to enjoy some week-ends abroad; between the Highlands, the Dorset and the Basque Country. Via London of course. No, Oncle René has not been crashed by a tram while crossing a street wildly on his bike. Just cruising around. 
Summer times...
WesterPark knitting style, or, how to take care of your bike. Because my bike worth it.

"The Sun Screwed". Sure, but not your bike, mate.

Angry driver VS Bikes

Friday afternoon, Oncle René's bike has been victim of a dramatic accident. A car just went through a full line of bikes, parked on Rembrandtplein. 

In the first minutes, it has been said that it was a deliberate terrorist attack against the dutch bike industry. An attempt to paralyze the ducth economy at its roots. 

Anyway, later on, the police confirmed that it was actually a drunk driver who tried to make is own way through the traffic...

The lesson is: Better having a second-hand Gazelle bike parked at the end of the line, like Oncle René's one, than a thousand euros road-bike smashed at the beginning of it.

With love from Amsterdam,

Oncle René
