Bike Travel Day

Do you want to throw yourself into your first bike trip? Accompanied by Pro Velo and its partners, come live, breath and pedal bike rides in all their forms during the “Bike Travel Day”, which has: bike mechanics, an equipment and baggage workshop, a scenario, a meeting with travellers, practical and technical advice, etc. The “Bike Travel Day” is a total immersion into bike trips on Brussels’ cycle routes. A guaranteed fun experience of discovery. Meet on Sunday 23 May at See U in Ixelles, Rue Fritz Toussaint 8.

What is the best time to go on a bike trip? What equipment should I bring? What clothes? How do I choose my route? What budget should I anticipate? What tools should I bring? How do I repair a puncture, a brake or tune my bike? A whole series of questions that the “Bike Travel Day” will address through sharing experiences and practical application. With Pro Velo, Bike-Packer and Hors Catégorie.

The programme looks to be exciting:
