haha, Almafuerte, you crack me up. Yes, it IS! 🙂

Instead of limo’s the newly weds hired bike taxis.

Just think, one day the bike will be on the top modes of transportation and this scene will be common in a lot more countries. Either tomorrow or in a few years from now. Spread the news and I’ll keep riding! 🙂

Is it common in Amsterdam or just in vogue this year? I love the idea, i hope it gonna be common in a near future all over the planet.

Great blog! Thank you for sharing Amsterdam bike culture with us!

Thanks for your support, Stephane, it’s easy to keep cycle blogging like this! I’ve seen weddings with guests on regular bikes (pretty common), but this was first time I saw bike taxis involved.Knowing how bike trends go in Amsterdam (it’s a small town after all) I see a bright future for this phenomenon.

OK, I totally want bike taxis for my wedding after seeing these pics. Can you have them in the United States by September? Thanks.

Nice blog, I just found it. I visited your fine city 10 years ago and loved it! I wish we had the biking infrastructure you do over here. Any place where the bikes get the green light at traffic lights before cars is alright in my book.

‘Welcome back’, Dan :).

I don’t know where in the US you live, and how big your megaphone is, but I’ve also told a bike friend in Portland to spread the word about these taxis (Veloform.com from Germany builds and exports the most popular model) and start this business, because it’s booming!
‘Cause ya never know, do you? 😉

My wife LOVED it! She/we own a Bridal Salon and are always looking for a different angle, we have decorated our tandem, rented a rickshaw, etc. I have been attempting to justify the cost of a Bakfiets..;-)
