All bicycles powered by Belgian frites

┬ęBarry Sandland/TIMB – Bikes and the best Belgian power supply.

This is another Pro Velo service. You can rent bikes for the day or more, come as individuals or groups and enjoy the day out. This mass came to Brussels and rented bikes for the day and had to make the obligatory stop at a friterie and get something good.

This friterie is in front of the Belgian opera house and central library. Actually one of my favourites. I stop far too often and get an essential pick-me-up in the middle of the day.

I am seeing ProVelo all across Brussels more and more and have started to love their role in cycling. They host lots of tours and have campaigns to bring cycling to new segments of the population. I saw them this morning with a group that was almost entire female, from a wide range of the population, riding through the city centre.

Oh yeah, Granville bikes are Belgian. I had no idea!
