1/3: “I have had this bike about 30 years, It is swift in town and clean, of course. The  toeclips came from a  friend who has died in the meantime. I also have a Flandria, a yellow one,  but there are people who collect them.”

Photographer’s notes: There are fewer cyclists on the Brussels roads in the recent cold weather. Rather, there are fewer cyclists outside the commuting hours. But the, the people you see just appear to be the hard core cyclists, the ones who are going to go out no matter the weather. All the softies have left their bikes at home and turned to public transport, or other. Hard core are more fun.
