today was the day of the 4th annual RadparRADe around the Ring in Vienna, held at the weekend of the Bike festival in front of Rathaus. This was however my first time participating. I took a fair few photos of fun cycles, so today is a bit of a picture special… 😉
My bike, pimped out with a MU flag, and the free flowers we got to put on our handlebars.
A rather tall ride.
Someone advertising for Critical Mass
The back of the Critical Mass cycle
Another funky advertising cycle
Even a dragon!!
And someone making a point, with penguins and a barbecue basket. 🙂
If you want to see the main sites in Vienna, but don’t feel like forking out for a tourist bus, you can get a day-pass (unless you already have one with Wienerlinien, then you don’t need to do anything more) and take the the D-line from one end to the next. It passes most of the important things in Vienna, and goes at a leisurely pace. You’ll pass the important theaters, the parliament, most of the museums, the opera house, Belvedere castle, Fernwärme Wien (a building designed by Hundertwasser)… Really, if you want a hop-on hop-off line that doesn’t have an extra price tag, and that is also not full of tourists – it’s the perfect choice. 😉
Sometimes you just feel like you’re in ‘Vienna.’ Like, when you’re walking past an open window and someone is rehearsing a piece on the violin, or when you’re walking past the window of a piano store on the Ring….
