Cycling makes you happy

Everyone knows that cycling’s a healthy activity. And the fact that it’s good for the environment and mobility is no secret. But did you know that cycling also makes you happy? The pedalling motion encourages the release of various hormones. One of these is endorphin, the so-called euphoria hormone!


It’s a good habit, so let’s stick to it #KeepCycling

The lockdown has left its mark on Brussels, a lot of people have stopped using their cars and started cycling instead. It’s a good habit, so why not stick to it? Below you’ll find all the information you need to help you get (back) in the saddle, so Brussels remains a more cycle-friendly city.

A better Brussels 
starts on your bike

We all dream of a better Brussels. And we can easily build it together, by riding our bicycles more often. Because the more people are cycling, the greener, safer and nicer life will become here.

Bike for Brussels wants to get our city’s inhabitants on the pedals, from Felix to Fatimah, from Sophie to Sam. This initiative of Brussels mobility merges various cycling initiatives in our capital. Admittedly, the cycling infrastructure in our city is far from perfect today. And of course, there can still be room for other means of transport, like cars. But by riding our bicycles more often, we all contribute to a better city. Let’s make Brussels alive & pedaling together!

Downtown and Uptown on Bruzz

Who let the dogs out? Who? Who? Who? Who?
There you go, now you’ll be stuck with that tune in your head all day. Sorry! But we did it for a reason. And a really good one at that! Because with a catchy tune in your head, you can enjoy music on your bike without needing earphones. And that means you’ll hear that car getting closer – a car that might not have noticed you – and sing, What is love? Baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me, no more instead of Hit me baby one more time.

Tune into Downtown and Uptown on Bruzz every day and they’ll help plant those super-catchy tunes in your head.

Bike Light Lane, 
the light at the end of the tunnel

Riding your bicycle? Now that’s a pretty sight! However, make sure you are also seen at night. For your own safety, and the safety of others. This may seem obvious, but 1 out of 4 cyclists in Brussels still rides without a bike light. To change that, Bike for Brussels launched a worldwide first: the Bike Light Lane, an interactive tunnel that highlights the importance of bicycle lights.

Cyclists that entered the Bike Light Lane without a lamp, were treated to a life-sized animation on the tunnel’s wall. At first, a cycling avatar appeared, who kept pace with them, while passing lively scenes of Brussels by night. Next, a second avatar showed up, one without a bike light, who ended up in a traffic accident.

Quite a dramatic lesson for the not-so-enlightened cyclists in the Bike Light Lane? Maybe, but luckily there was a light at the end of the tunnel. Literally, because they all received a handy bike light, enabling them to continue their journey in the most visible way. Be bright, use a light!

Park your bike safely

Arrived?  Then you want to park your precious bicycle in a safe place. No problem: Brussels has hundreds of secured bicycle boxes. Visit cycloparking.org to discover where you can find them. On that same site, you can register to get your own parking spot. These spots are in great demand, but many more will be added in the coming years.
