Who are Brussels' cyclists?⠀

🚲 Two-thirds of cyclists in Brussels are men - and half of bike users in the city ride without a helmet.⠀

🚲 Those are some of the findings from the 2017 report by the Observatoire du Vélo, which 28,151 cyclists on the roads last year.⠀

🚲 In 2016, there was a major increase in the number of cyclists recorded after many people opted to stay away from public transport following the terrorist attacks.⠀

🚲 Among the people who took up cycling for the first time in 2017, about 70% were previously public transport users and 20% ditched their cars for two wheels. Most of the new cyclists on the streets last year were aged between 25 and 39.⠀

🚲 64.1% of cyclists were men, 34.1% women, and 1.8% children.⠀

🚲 Some of the busiest roads were Mérode with an average of 688 cyclists an hour and Rue de la Loi with 651 an hour.⠀

🚲According to the Brussels Environment, many of the bicycle parking areas near metro stations are becoming too cluttered. With some parking spaces at more than 80% capacity, the city needs to enlarge these areas, allowing more bicycles to be chained up for the day.⠀

Let's count the cyclists in here! Comment with 🚴 down below!⠀

Metro station #Simonis in Brussels could intuitively make you feel at home. ⠀

Why? ⠀
According to @stibmivb, ⠀
"The designs on these tiles form a repetitive motif that makes us think of tiles, carpets, blankets and wallpaper. We find similar motifs throughout the centuries in houses in all sorts of different cultures. The fact that this motif is recognisable for so many people gives the passenger a very reassuring feeling."⠀

We love #BrusselsMetro, do you?
