3430 bikes at 343 stations all over the cities of Helsinki and Espoo ready to run. 3 200 000 trips in 2018, approx. 2 kilometres per run. Is this eco-city or what? :D

I have never liked city living, but there's a part of me that envies those of you who can bike to work. Although I live near a small city, the traffic between my home and work is horrendous . . . but in 2 months and 19 days, it will no longer be an issue! :D

Almost all of my working life I've been cycling to work, which has been great. Now I have to bike for 15 minutes to get in the city center for street photography, also great. And if I want to go to another city I bike and take a train, like today when we went to Amsterdam. I only go by car if bike + public transport is really impractical.

Retirement coming up?

I cycled or ran to work from 1968 until I retired in 2008, 40 years. The first 25 years was in the sticks and I wouldn't have swapped it for any other form of transport. Never had a car and never wanted one. Still cycle at every opportunity.
