“It is heavy. It is black. Not very interesting to be stolen.” 

Photographer’s notes: She has been riding in Brussels every day for the past seven years, heading to and from her job at a local social services office, and then to the meetings during the day. Typical to seemingly Belgian riders, she has been on a bike all her life, starting when she lived in the country. I initially thought the bike was electric, is is so big and solid. The rider was quite definite. It is not electric and she does not seem to want one.

The bike is a  German design. You can read more here…
