Germany is a very bicycle friendly country, in fact all of Europe shares this trait. It is healthy, environmentally friendly, efficient, low budget and an activity that is very Hygge-list. The benefits of bicycling for your own health are innumerable, not to mention the multitude of benefits to the environment. The communities of people and personalities that enjoy pedaling as their primary source of transportation lead to experiences and friendships that will last lifetimes. As you can imagine, I am eager to join this community.
I do own a bicycle, albeit it is a decade or so past its prime but it is functional. This winter I have decided that it is time for my dusty old bike to go under the knife.
This page will track my progress as I rebuild my bicycle into something I can be proud to ride come spring time. It will then document my many explorations on two wheels across the countrysides of Germany and its neighboring countries.
