Brussels Photo: Friday, 8 December 2006

'Brussels gets on the bike. And you?' (Bruxelles se met au velo. Et vous?)
This is how the city of Brussels started its campaign for the Cyclocity initiative. 23 bike stations are spread across the city, where bikes are available 24/7. Thus, in principle, one could visit the city by bike.
Then again this is Belgium (Brussels) and notorious for its bureaucracy. We used a similar system in Berlin and it worked perfectly fine. However in Brussels you need to first own an insurance number before you register with this service. A shortcoming for all tourists who would be most likely the first to make use of such a service.
I would love to hear if your city has similar bike services and how it works. Happy ride!
