Barcelona Bikes

Lee Techner's recent post titled City Bikes reminds me of some photos I took in Barcelona a couple years ago while I was there for some business meetings. At his prompting, I am posting them below. I have a few more photos from that trip that I plan to share later after I finish the Lisbon series which I will return to soon.

Rows of red city bikes really stand out in the streets of Barcelona.

There is a good supply of them, but on this cold and windy day, there are no takers.

Finally, this girl is taking a bike. Her friends would rather use a scooter and roller skates.

It seems we all have some photos of bikes standing in a row. I have some, I took a while back when I was in Washington DC. As Antonio mentioned, now once again they are sitting/standing untouched.

I really like #1's perspective.....leading lines.

Maybe we should do a bike photo challenge so we get to see everyone's bike photos. grinning

Thanks, Jay. I didn't have a lot of time to explore the city since I was there for work, but there are some interesting places to see. Things are pretty pricey there though.

What a shame. It must cost the city a small fortune to maintain those bikes.

Nice shots. Those certainly are nice rows of bikes. They don't appear to get used much though.

Thanks, Craig. It looks like most of the bikes are just sitting there rusting away. Maybe they get more usage during the warmer months.

Hi Benny, greetz from my bicycle trip: to the border of Luxembourg and back. It must suffice as long as we are locked down.

Hi Piotr, a bicycle trip doesn't sound too bad even though you are kind of restricted. Stay safe!
