I think I want to start eating Schwenkbraten, and learn to talk German!
Oh my god, this sounds like heaven:
- Voted most comfortable German bicycle city.
- 3,000 space park parking facility at the main train station.
- A complete network of wide bike paths and roads open exclusively to cyclists.
- Rent a bike easily, typically £4.80 per day. (That is HALF the price of my equivalent train fare in London!)
No, I'm not dreaming, this is Münster in Northrhine-Westphalia, Germany.
It sounds like the city has it's town planning priorities properly organized. The 3,000 space bike parking opened in 1999, and within the 1st year alone achieved 80% full capacity.
What can I say, these Germans are YEARS ahead of us! (Come on Ken... get on your bike mate ;-)
