“I have been on the bike in Brussels for 16 years now. I took it on go to work. because it is faster than by car. In general work is about 20 minutes out then back. At lunch, I can go home as well. So often I do four trips a day. By car, the same trip its doubled. And far more stressful. The people in cars are more and more aggressive and nervous.
“So today, with a bit of sun, I am taking advantage and am here in the park. I have the panniers so I can do the shopping as well. I fill my sack and then head home. I have a car but I never use it. It is in front of my house and I use it for vacations with the family but I do everything else with the bike.”
