The folks at Momondo have provided Cycling Shorts with a series of five useful infographics on European city bike schemes. The staff at Momndo put it together in their spare time. So a big thank you goes out the them.
When going on a city break, the best way to explore a city is by bike. You’re plans can be more flexible, it allows to truly experience the city, you can go at your own pace and discover places and streets that one would not see when taking the boring old tours buses. Government sponsored bike schemes make it really easy to do.
The first city in the series is:
London with its parks and the river Thames offers the perfect scenery for a bike ride. It’s not just about the great music and fashion scene, the city has so much to offer. A lot of the museums have free admission, great street markets and the place oozes history from the grand buildings and royal history that is woven into the fabric of the city. The tube can be very crowded so the bike offers a welcoming alternative to visit all the hidden corners in the city.
