We went cycling with Max – an art historian who knows everything about Amsterdam’s architecture. We learned about the band of ‘rogue’ architects behind the ‘Amsterdam School’, the famous architectural style of the 1900s for Amsterdams social housing projects — which still bring in millions of tourists to Amsterdam each year. Do check it out!

Cycling With in the Irish Times
So nice – I got a mentioning in the Irish Times today. Together with my friend Paddy Cahill. With all the work that goes into shooting our cycling films, I haven’t found time to keep this blog updated, though.
If you like our cycling advocacy work, please go to http://www.CyclingWith.com and subscribe to our newsletter there.
We (that is: the Cycling With team, being – Paddy Cahill and myself) went for a cycle through Amsterdam with its former mayor: Job Cohen.
Please do check out our film; I bet you’ll like it. Thanks, Phil

Dear Dutch in Dublin reader,
are you tired of short viral video’s?
So are we.
Good news: on our other blog, called Cycling with… , we bring you monthly short films with substance.
For example: check out our cycling interview with Ernst Jan Pfauth and Alexander Klopping.
So, why are we making these documentaries?
Well: today’s cities face big problems, like polluted air, obese citizens, and social exclusion.
Luckily, there’s a simple solution: the bicycle.
We believe that if we share stories of inspiring people on bikes, we can encourage cities to take pro-cycling action.
So we have embarked on a mission to film 100 ‘Cycling with… documentaries’.
And to show the world how gloriously easy, fun and sexy a bike ride can be.
We’re doing this for fun, for free, with no hidden agenda’s.
And please let us know: what do you think of our mission?
Is there anyone in Dublin (or Europe) who we should interview next?
Feel free to leave a comment below.

Paddy Cahill and myself went for a cycle with Ellen Rowley. Ellen is an Architectural Historian who lives with her family in Ballybough, Dublin.
During our cycle, we talked to Ellen’s daughter Lillo, we looked at the architectural heritage in the north of Dublin (a beautiful part that often goes ignored), the architecture of the 20th Century and her special interest the social housing schemes by the former city architect Herbert Simms.
Ellen recently compiled a book of essays on Irish Architecture “i.e. Patterns of Thought”.
