in tel aviv i used my bike a lot. when i got here 6 years ago biking wasn't so common. but i'm from denmark so obviously i had to have a bike. today bikes are getting popular as i think is the case in many other places, but it's still nothing like in denmark where biking is simply a way or life: taking the kids to kindergarten, going to work, doing grocery shopping, meeting friends at cafes and restaurants, going to the beach in the summer, visiting friends in the winter - a natural part of living.
after we moved to the countryside we use the bike to take the kids to kindergarten and for trips around the neighborhood. like yesterday, where i took all three boys out for a ride, hoping to see the storks again. and yes, they are still around. and you still have to click for a bigger version of the photo if you want to be able to see them :))
when i miss the whole biking scene of copenhagen i visit copenhagen cycle chic with cool pictures of cool people driving their bikes. i love that!
