How are folks pedaling along in the different parts of Europe? We asked five people about their experiences with riding their bike, or even their scooter, to work. What advantages and disadvantages does motor-free transport present for them? What’s the ride like in different European metropolises? And how well is cycling supported by employers? Join us in taking inspiration from them and let your car take a well-deserved rest in its garage.
