Doing another city tour

©Barry Sandland/TIMB - Man with his bike in Brussels

©Barry Sandland/TIMB – Caught at one of the locations where you can get a good line of sight of the city, a Dutch bike and rider enjoying a decent, winter, sunny day.

“I brought my bike in Brussels with me because I am visiting my daughter who is working here. I am intending to look at Brussels on my bike a little bit. I like to do that. I do not do it only with Brussels but with other places. Like Paris, for instance. And that is why I have my bike with me.”


Photographer’s notes:  You cannot tell from this shot, but he is wearing a Tour de France cap. We spoke a little about The Grand Tour and I will bring the man and his bike back to this page when the Tour de France is closer. His chat is well worth a second, maybe third, posting… As for the origin of the rider, the Batavus “Old Dutch” design is the giveaway, even if it is a modern version. Whenever I go to Holland, I have a subconscious entertainment looking at the brands of bikes lining the roads. Batavus is a constant.
