Ed van der Elsken was a Dutch photographer and film maker. Naturally, one of his favorite subjects was of people riding bicycles (and motorcycles) in Amsterdam.

Translated from Rad Spannerei:
Ed van der Elsken (March 10, 1925 in Amsterdam, † December 28, 1990 in Edam) was a Dutch photographer and filmmaker.

His work was exhibited in the early 1950s at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, and the Bibliotheque Nationale de France. Throughout his life he used the city streets as his stage, and photographed the lives played out there. He was interested in the interaction between humans and the environment. He began his professional training as a sculptor, but he turned to photography after the Second World War.

The black and white film from 1965 shows Fietsen cyclists from Amsterdam.
