Back to Beholding Blond Belgian Bombshells on Bicycles

I’m back in Leuven, Belgium for a couple of weeks, and this means Belgian beer, waffles and fries! Well, more on this on a next blog update. Since this is a triathlon blog, I have to stick to something triathlon-related πŸ™‚

Fortunately, other than being known as the headquarters of Inbev (the beer company that bought Anheuser Busch), Leuven happens to be where Rutger Beke lives, the Belgian who placed 3rd at the recent Ironman Kona in Hawaii. Hmmm, I wouldn’t have guessed it but this cold place might actually be a nice place to train. If only if I had a wetsuit (I don’t) and brought my running shoes (I didn’t). Which brings me to the next best thing to do, that is, to observe the bike habits of the local inhabitants here, specifically the blond bombshell types.Β 

For these women, riding a bike on the way to work or school is the most ordinary thing, and this what makes it really fascinating. You can see them riding, always fashionably dressed, without helmets of course (not fashionable), sometimes talking on the phone, always with a handbag.

Well these scenes probably won’t happen in Manila, but this should encourage people everywhere to take up biking. In fact, I like to say that my previous set of of similar photos have inspired not a few women acquaintances in Manila to take up biking, if only within their village or subdivision. Well, here’s hoping for more Mesmerizing Manila Maidens on the Move πŸ™‚

  1. If the traffic here in Manila could have been the same as there and the temperature, I am sure more people would have biked. That would contribute possitively to traffic here as well.
