Cycling in Brussels


This is one of 23 Cyclocity stations in Brussels that have a combined total of 250 bikes for rent. To be honest I wasn’t very impressed: the stations I saw all looked empty, I saw very few people out-and-about on bicycles in Brussels, I didn’t see any cycle lanes except in the leafy suburbs, and the city seems very car-friendly with wide avenues and fast-moving traffic. Given that I am used to traffic driving on the left rather than the right hand side of the road I would need more encouragement to take my life in my hands in this way. Apparently Brussels, like Rome, is built on seven hills and cycling has not taken off here in the same way as it has in nearby European cities.
