Very lovely.I sometimes forget, but when tooling around Europe some years back I found the general attitude to cycling and cyclists utterly inspiring. I also loved the fact that people used bikes for the intended purpose, which is to just get around rather than riding as if they're doing time trials daily. I myself commit the crime of lycra but I can't help thinking we might be better off without it and the high performance machines that seem to be almost obligatory to avoid being sneered at when tethering up. Mind you, that might be partly to do with the rampant bike thieving throughout Europe, the short distances, the flat landscapes but at least part of it has to be that they can share the roads with cars and pedestrians rather than constantly vie for position.
