Imagine the sound of the tinkering bike gears as you ride down the cobblestone pathway, winding through the tall traditional Dutch houses and then out along to the open canal. This is the beautiful city that Simone lives in – Maastricht, the oldest city in the Netherlands.
Despite being a local, Simone still finds a lot of joy in exploring her own city, finding new locations and hotspots in her free time. The city of Maastricht is known for its medieval architecture and vibrant cultural scene, and being a part-time blogger Simone loves to share these experiences on her social media.
Simone stumbled across the baby blue LEKKER Jordaan whilst surfing the web one day, and it was love at first sight! –“For me, the colour and the model was important because I’ll be using it every day… Everybody wants to have a baby blue bike! That’s why I even got insurance on it. So it’s one less thing to worry about!”
You’ll often see her out and about on her Jordaan, running errands or on her 10km bike ride to work. Simone’s bike has become such a major part of her life that she even sold her car! “Since I got my LEKKER bike, I use it to go everywhere and I even sold my car because it was not necessary anymore.”
To Simone owning a bike is not just a mode of transport, it’s a way of living! – “ The bike gives me the freedom to explore new things in life and it gets me from point A to B… I always enjoy riding my bike and it’s a much more sustainable solution to get around with!”
