  • You and your partner will set out on your bikes while it's still dark. As the city slowly comes to life, you will see the beautiful transformation of Amsterdam from night to day. Heading to the picturesque canals, crossing the iconic bridges and biking by the quaint houses, you can share these incredible moments together. Remember, it's not about speed but more about the journey and discovery. And when the sun is fully up, find a perfect spot to stop and share a quick, unexpected kiss, adding a spark to the surprise.
  • Make your way to charming breakfast cafΓ© to refuel after your ride. Enjoy a delicious breakfast together, reflecting on the morning's adventure and admiring the beauty of the city as it bustles with daily life. Now that you've combined an active morning with a romantic breakfast, the date is guaranteed to be a memorable one.
  • However, also remember that every surprise doesn't go as planned. In case your partner isn't a morning person or doesn't enjoy biking, have a backup plan ready. It could be a relaxed morning walk or just cuddles in bed with a home-made breakfast together.

Preparation steps:

  • Firstly, find a place where you can rent a bike. In Amsterdam, it should be easy to find numerous bike rental shops. Reserve your bikes a day prior to ensure you have one ready for your early morning adventure. Make sure the bike is comfortable and check all the bike's gear since biking in Amsterdam requires a good quality bike due to its flat terrain and biking-centric infrastructure.
  • Next, do a little research on the sunrise time in August in Amsterdam. This will help you plan your outing efficiently so you can enjoy the city's beauty at its best in the early morning. Design a route highlighting main destinations but also include little known places for a more intimate experience.
  • Finally, make a reservation at a breakfast cafΓ© that opens early. Ensure they have a diverse menu catering to both your tastes. Inform your partner to be ready for a surprise morning outing but don't reveal the exact details to keep an element of surprise.

Some tips:

  • Safety is paramount. Always wear a helmet, follow traffic rules and stay observant of your surroundings. Amsterdam is a cyclist's paradise, but it can get busy quickly with both cyclists and pedestrians.
  • The weather is quite changeable in Amsterdam. Be sure to check the weather forecast before you go and dress in layers. A light rain jacket could be useful as morning showers are possible in August.
  • Keep the date flexible. The best part of this date is the element of surprise, but it's also its biggest gamble. If it's not the perfect morning for a ride, or if your partner is not up for it, don't push it. Instead, have a back-up plan ready.
