“This is my only bike.”
“The reason why I use this bike is perfectly clear. It is the easiest way to get from here to the fitness centre.”
Photographer’s notes: City bikes have been a huge phenomena for cycling in recent years. City after city have introduced the programs. Paris, Barcelona, London, Brussels … keep listing the names. They stand in regimented rows across the city, their tail fins on display. Nobody owns a bike. This is no person’s bike. It is everybody’s bike.
There are 5,000 Villo bikes in at least 180 locations across Brussels, making it one of the largest city bike programs in the world. They get used over 25,000 times a week.
