Bicycle revolution by Cycle Chic ladies

There is a small revolution going on at the Brussels’ office of Child Focus. In the past 6 months, the number of people cycling to the office went from 2 to 6 in a few months only. How? By the simple but strong force of girls on bicycles!





Eleonor & Julie cycle to work daily, with flair, passion and enthusiasm, without fluo or lycra. And by doing just that, they have managed to pass the vibe on to other people and they are on their way to conquer many more hearts for cycling!

One striking example of a person that has been inspired by Julie and Eleonor, is Stéphanie. She recently switched from car to e-bike and now cycles to work (22km one way!) after bringing her children to school.

So the message to all of you out there is: Keep inspiring the people around you just by cycling chic and with a smile on your face!




More changes are ahead! 

It’s more than just good looks on a bicycle. Julie, former employee of cyclists’ organization Fietsersbond, asked the HR-department to bring the cycle allowance up from 0,15€ to 0,22€ per kilometer cycled along your preferred and most importantly, safest route. 

The recent renovations in the offices will hopefully also allow for better, cleaner and more bicycle parking and showers. This makes a big difference for cyclists! 

Child Focus will also make an overall plan to promote sustainable and active mobility. Of a total of 54 employers, 35 live in and around Brussels, which is a very interesting target group to focus on. 

You are doing great, keep up the good Bike 2 Work!

This is so lavieestbelle

This lovely young woman is the archetype of a free-minded and very positive generation of chic french cyclers. Spotted in Paris, she knows how to combine fashion, simplicity and style!

Beauty and her shy beast


This lovely cyclist is taking it on with hilly Brussels since a couple of years now. Steering her beast around trams from time to time but never questions her own capacities. Doing and looking great, girl! And you make us proud, because you are so chic, too!







Of course we cycle! Brussels Park reveals

Yesterday I was stunned by the magic of this smart couple in one of our green lungs in Brussels. Stylish and so natural, they allowed me to be part of this for the second of this photo. This is how the future should look like: Green, chic and two-wheeled.  
A sight to behold!  
Love and peace to all the other smarties out there.

MAD BIKE & Car-free Sunday 2015

Mad Bike 2015

During the European Mobility Week, many events are organised to promote smart mobilities as an alternative to single-person car trips. As usual during this week, planners, politicians and inhabitants talk about urban cycling and liveable cities. On Sunday, they walk the talk and in Brussels region, 19 municipalities have decided to ban cars for a day.


MAD BIKE 

The festival MAD BIKE brings people together as well as being professional and trendy. It is based on urban mobility, showing off ‘bicycle culture' via bike exhibitions, bike demonstrations, professional get-togethers/round tables, bike and accessory exhibitors.
