Whether travellers are in Europe to learn a language or on holiday, everyone hopes to discover the “real” city beyond tour busses and museums. One of the best ways to do this is travel like a true local, using government sponsored cycling schemes. Unlike buses and trains, cycling is flexible as users can chart their own paths and discover neighbourhoods at their own pace, pause in parks, and join residents moving about the city on two wheels.
