RIDE WITH ME is a series of extraordinary city guides, created and researched by 'bike princess' Roos Stallinga & friends. with illustrated routes all over - and beyond - town, great tips for stops on the way, and portraits of locals on their bikes. Roos inspires people to experience the full scope of the city, in the best way there is, by bike, and through the eyes of the people who live there.
roosart is a visual diary. It is my life in fragments of drawing, photos, writing, film and collage. I love traveling and meeting people from all walks of life. Riding my bike and documenting the stories of people and the city. As well as good coffee, food, wine, books, sea and the smell of rosemary, pine and eucalyptus in the air. Amsterdam is my home, and nyc kind of too.
