I started riding my bike to work this week. I bike. To work. In Europe. I feel like I should get a basket on my handlebars and fill it with baguettes.

Geneva is a very bike-friendly city. There are huge paths set apart from motorized traffic. Even when bike and car traffic merge, there are small traffic signals specifically for bicyclists.

The only disconcerting part of the ride is the occasional lane that is designated for buses, taxis, and bikes. They may as well include mothers with prams. It’s kind of like having a special room in your house for rare paintings, fine china and wildebeests.

You better be obeying the helmet law. And if Geneva doesnt have one, I dont care, because I do.
