Hi all. I'll be in Brussels for a conference in mid-September and will stay for the following weekend. While I'm happy enough doing 'normal' touristy stuff, it seems a bit of a waste not to do some cycling while I'm there. So, I have a couple of questions that I hope you can answer...
1. Bike routes - are there any routes/places that are not to be missed? I'm not willing to stay overnight anywhere other than Brussels because of my luggage, etc, but am happy to get a train elsewhere if that opens up other options.
2. I can't take my bike so will need to rent/hire one. Any recommendations of places that I can get one? Obviously the nicer the bike, the better.
Also, if the hire place has English speakers, that would be a massive plus - sadly I don't speak any other language.
P.S. I've searched on the forum but could only find one relevant thread and the Pro Velo website mentioned is a bit rubbish - loads of missing links, etc.
