It turns out it’s been ten years since I used my bike regulary. I didn’t notice it up until I jumped onto my bike.
On tuesday I said my goodbyes to my old colleagues, returned all the equipment I had on loan and returned the BMW at 59250 km with two fresh front tires. I tracked my way back through the Brussels subway station to the train Central station in Brussel, and got onto one of many trains back to home, finishing off with a 4 km bike ride. Which informed me that my body was not used to be under this quite mild stress a saddle and biking can give.
So, we’re having a go at this public transport thing. Price-wise, I feel you do get more bang for your buck when driving – since I am also offered a parking space – but maybe I might end up making my time in the train useful, not to mention to benefit from this small bit of biking exercise twice a day.
