Sunday biking




When the weather is nice, this is what people do here or at least what I see people doing, all over Belgium, on Sunday afternoons, in all forms and shapes... . Is it for fun, sports, exercise, leisure,  pleasure, socializing? Does it really matter?

  2. We loved that there were so many bikes everywhere in Bruges but we learned to be careful of them before crossing the road!!

    1. hope so much that you enjoyed your Bruges visit, what a shame that I only found out about Raymond a few days ago (after your trip). if I got it right, you are already on your way to your next travels ?

  4. It's nice to see that everyone doesn't think it obligatory to wear lycra to go out on a bicycle...

  6. I love Belgium! Only visited once, and will have to remedy that. Aside from the countryside and architecture, best bouillabaisse in the whole wide world.

  7. Beati i belgi, io in due mesi sono uscito in bicicletta solo sette volte a causa del maltempo. Questa settimana sono riuscito a pedalare solo martedì e giovedì, mentre ieri ed oggi abbiamo avuto forti piogge. Speriamo che questo tempo faccia giudizio. Ciao Anni, buonanotte.

    1. I Belgi non sono più fortunati rispetto agli Italiani, penso, Elio
      Anche qui, il tempo è stato veramente terribile, ma
      non appena un raggio di sole appare e tutti si affrettano fuori

  9. Hallo Anni,
    Een gezonde sport, maar gevaarlijk hier in de streek: als er een groep wielertoeristen met 3 op rij over de bochtige wegen fiest hangt er al gauw een file van meerdere tientallen autos achter...

    1. een moeilijke kwestie, Frans
      gisteren was er nog een betoging in Brussel over het onderwerp "meer plaats voor voetgangers en fietsers in het centrum". veiligheid zou sowieso altijd op de eerste plaats moeten komen.

  11. Dat hebben de Hollanders en Belgen wel gemeen, ze houden allebei van fietsen, zowel professioneel als voor de recreatie.
