Cycling in Copenhagen I was reflecting on the differences between there and here. There seems to be a lot more people cycling in Copenhagen, that’s for sure. Especially considering that the city has about half the population of Vienna. Cycle paths there also seem to be better set up, here in Vienna they’re reasonably good, but they don’t have the seemless transitions between road and path where the sidewalk ends and the road begins. Overall though I’m very happy with the cycling paths in Vienna.:-)
Cycle ways are actually quite good in Vienna. And as the city is relatively flat, it’s also an ideal way of getting around which doesn’t take much time compared to the subway and other public transport. I see many that can’t be bothered wearing a helmet in traffic though, which always makes me wonder whether people care at all about what’s inside their skulls. Even companies don’t seem to care here. In Norway everyone cycling for a courier service would most definitely wear helmets… And in NZ it is illegal to cycle without a helmet.
Lately the weather has been quite shifty. Today it is really beautiful though, with cotton clouds and nice sunshine. 🙂 Perfect cycle weather.
I finally tried out this place, having cycled past it a lot of times. It is located on the Donaukanal, just next to Badeschiff. It’s an American style BBQ restaurant. Something I really enjoyed was their selection of IPAs!! Hello, and YUM!! Indian Pale Ale is hard to come by in Vienna in general, and they had a cool selection. Not that cheap though, with the Sierra Nevada on the bottom end of the price scale at 4,90€. But worth it. Unfortunately I didn’t whip up my phone to take a picture of the food.. But I can assure you it was yummy! I had the pulled pork sandwich with kimchi, and a side of rocket and tomato salad. To die for. Portions are not huge, but they fill you up. And I guess that’s the most important thing about eating. This is the view when you’re leaning back satisfied, sipping your beer after a nice meal. I can recommend this place, yes.
