    Oh if us brits could take a leaf out of their book.

    Total cycling friendly.

    Well it has the major advantages of being as flat as a pancake and the fact that Belgians don't regard cyclists as weird. But there are nutters there, like anywhere else.

    Bruges/Brugge is one of my favourite cities... as are Ghent and Kortrijk.

    The Belgians have cycling perfectly sussed, just like the Dutch.

    I spent a few days in Bruges with my family and it was great. However, we had the car and no bikes and whereas that presented no problem during our stay, trying to find our hotel when we arrived proved impossible by car; and the day we left was a nightmare, as once again we couldn't get to the hotel and so had to drag the luggage through the streets, and then finding the correct road out took a lot of driving around and going the wrong way.
    One or two roads in town had bad traffic, consisting no doubt of frantic tourists as much as locals who knew where they were going.
