Why cycle?

The joys of cycling

Why cycling is generally wonderful. And why people who cycle to work are happier than cardrivers. And how Belgium has just been assessed as the 6th most cycle friendly city in Europe.

Discover Brussels by bike

Several organisations or companies offer guided bike tours throughout the year and throughout Brussels. Check out Pro VeloBrussels Bike Tours and Cactus&Co for details.

Cycling as a sport

If you’re interesting in sports cycling, there is a group in the EU institutions (intranet link) based in Brussels who’d like to hear from you.


There are some excellent blogs available in English and Dutch life on two wheels in and around Brussels, and this one from a EU official and Brussels citizen which includes a fascinating little survey of what expats think of cycling in the city.

Tell us in the comments section if you know any others.
