Brussels’ Bikes

Brussels – Bike Hire 2009

This is a picture that I took whilst working in central Brussels in 2009. It shows an example of one of the stations forming part of the city’s Villo bike hire scheme. There are said to be around 2,500 bikes for hire at about 160 locations.

The new scheme will take into account lessons learnt from the rather unsuccessful Cyclocity scheme which started in 2006.

Given the levels of traffic and congestion  in Brussels it will be interesting to see if the authorities can make cycling more attractive.
