WORDLESS WEDNESDAY

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

As the center of Brussels is so overloaded with cars, you can now take the train or bus and rent a bike. No problems to find a parking space !

Interesting, it seems like your links were transferred over from the last Cats on Tuesday...

It's great that the Brussels and other cities make bikes available like that.

I saw this in a town called Northampton in UK last week. Seems to be a great idea (I also saw it with little cars in London, though)...

Happy WW day, my post is here

nice idea.. we should try that here too.. less pollution, more work out.. see my daughter's Christmas Pictures year 2007 , year 2006 and on Christmas day itself of 2006

I haven't ridden a bike for years and would probably fall off if I tried now. Isn't it supposed to be like sex, you never forget...or is it the other way round?

Barcelona has "bicing" and it's been a complete success!
He,he, I think you got the idea of my world :)
Happy WW, my post is up!

Great idea and great for the environment, too! I used to ride my bike to work but stopped because the traffic here in PP is getting crazier as the day goes on. There goes my daily exercise *sigh*

Oops... I don't know how to ride a bicycle.

There are traffic jams in our city areas so this idea is good. :)

It's a very nice idea! I like biking but it's here dangerous when there isn't special little passage only reserved for the bikes. when I won't have to bring Mélissa at the bus stop every morning I'd like to try to go at work every morning by bike.

Looks healthy!

luna miranda said...

that would be perfect in the city i live in...but we need to wear a mask to ride a bike around here.:D

Great way to get around. Sadly with London streets you take your life in your hands! Happy WW

I haven't been on a bike in YEARS!!! Actually, it looks cold there.

Beth F said...

I was in Brussels just this past May. The traffic, even on a weekend is crazy. Love the bike shots.

Luna said...

That is a very great idea!
I´ve never been in Brussels but they do this in Bremen too.

Schade, dass dir der Weihnachtsmarkt in Köln nicht so gut gefallen hat.
Wir fahren morgen nach Bremen zum Weihnachtsmarkt, aber wenn ich jetzt schon an die Menschenmassen denke....

Looks like they might get a little cold riding bikes there. I loved riding my bike when I was a kid but haven't ridden one in eons. Looks like a good idea though. I guess they are used to the cold weather. I'm not. It never gets really cold here.

they are going to do bike rentals in London... I'd love to try that

first they want to try putting down some safe cycle tracks, though!!

The Right Blue said...

That is a really great idea. I wish more cities followed this plan.

RennyBA said...

We have the same in Oslo, Norway and how environment friendly. Biking through the city is much more convinient and you don't have a parking problem (not to mention the cost!).

Lazy Daisy said...

What a great idea. I Bet people are healthier too.

Gretchen said...

More cities need to do this. It's almost 2009 and time to go green. :)

Dr.John said...

If you tried riding a bike around here you would need snow chains on the tires.

Indrani said...

Perfect for health and environment.
