80% of Bikers continue cycling after their Bike Experience and 40% go on to convince their friends and family to start cycling, simply because it is such good fun, and efficient. By cycling in the city you show that alternative modes of transport exist!
Bike Experience is over – it was a fantastic experience! A big thank you to my Coach for his presence, his flexibility and his tips and tricks. Without him I would not have become a ''Biker''.
My Coach had tested the various options for my route beforehand and could show me the best itinerary for my trip.
Hurrah! We overtook cars stuck in traffic after work today! Last week I would have been in the traffic jam with them...
My day of training went smoothly. We cycled across the city centre with a nice little group, great! It would never have occurred to me to cycle on the Montgomery roundabout.
Ten days of getting some fresh airs both mornings and evenings... Tomorrow I will hand in my rental bike, which proved to be perfect for my daily route of 8 km one-way – and the day after tomorrow I will buy a bike.
Bike Experience for me was a good test to see if I could actually do my trips to work by bike. It was a pleasant surprise. Now I cycle every day from Grimbergen to Uccle. Goodbye traffic jams!
