I Shop By Bike
The petrol price hike, the awareness of environmental issues and the search for wellbeing has propelled the bicycle to a means of transport in its own right. From home to work, school or leisure activities? But only rarely for shopping! And yet, it's well worth it: take a look!

On a trip in town of less than 5km, the bicycle will always be the fastest means of transport. By adding your shopping, which seldom weighs more than 10 kilos, you can always sail from one cycle lane to another without having the capacities of Tom Boonen: you'll simply perhaps have to make sure that you're equipped with a trusty bag rack.

To fill your fridge?

The trip between your home and the shops is a doddle: you pass the queues of cars and can always find a post for parking your bicycle. Moreover, why not take advantage of your return to work to fill your fridge? Finally, and it can't be said too often: thirty minutes of moderate physical activity are all you need to improve your health and to protect you from illness.


To spice things up a little and to encourage you to get on your bike, a contest is being organised with you in mind. To participate, there's nothing simpler: rendezvous in one of the 900 participating shops spread throughout the municipalities of Anderlceht, Auderghem, Brussels, Etterbeek, Evere, Forest, Ixelles, Jette, Molenbeek, Saint-Gilles, Schaerbeek and Watermael-Boitsfort. You'll recognise the partner shops via the operation's logo in the window. Collect the store stamps and take part in the prize draw... Frédéric Solvel
