We were visiting Nivelles; a rural town south of Brussels. The Belgians – like the Dutch – appreciate a functional way of cycling.
This traffic sign nicely portrays Belgium’s view on a cyclist crossing.
The cyclist pictogram reveals that the typical Belgian cyclist has long trousers with a 70’s style bootleg. To prevent the flares from getting caught, the Belgian cyclist has a chain guard and mudguards mounted on his bike. Finally, the Belgian cyclist has semi long hair, with a waving lock just above the collar.
Very stylish, very functional.
Apart from the hair, of course.
