We booked our flights to Birmingham today! We'll be there from April 19 to the 22nd... just a short visit with some of Chrystal's friends.
Riding a bike here is a serious business. There are dedicated bike lanes, and they follow strict rules, just like cars. There's even bicycle "rush hour". Locals get annoyed if you bike too slow. We have yet to try it... we need bikes first! Renting bikes looks like it's going to be too costly (approx 6 to 9 euros per day), so we'll most likely end up buying 2 used bikes... hopefully for around 75-80 euros each.
