Collision course

The Parliament chambre, Strasbourg April 2006
Strasbourg has more cycle lanes than any other city in France. So you would think that the best way to travel around the city would be by bike right? Wrong.

Although cycling in Strasbourg might be the fastest way around the city, it is far from the safest.

While the French may have a notorious reputation throughout Europe for their driving ability; it has to be said that their ability in the saddle is not a great deal better.

So even though the city centre is pedestrianised, with so many cyclists around, the chances of you colliding with a crazy Frenchman on two wheels is almost more likely than colliding with one on four.
