Sometimes recording your experiences requires
When my friend and I went to Brugge, our main activity was biking around the city as we weren't interested in wasting our money on shopping or spending long periods of time in museums or old buildings (we had done enough of that in Paris and Cologne).

the train station.
In order to rent our bikes, we had to leave a deposit; we were able to do this using our credit cards, which I liked because it's more convenient than using cash. Naturally, they won't withdraw the money unless you damage or fail to return your bike.

I'm unsure what the proper name for
this type of road is.
As expected from European-made bikes, our ride was smooth and comfortable, so the rental was worth the money. I love tour bikes; they can handle rugged pathways, yet offer the rider an upright position to better take in his or her's surroundings.

I assume the people who live here must be wealthy!

Somehow, I managed to take pictures and a bit of video while biking. You can view my footage below.

All in all, biking around Brugge was definitely worthwhile, especially since we wanted to capitalize on the fact that bikes allow one to see areas of town which are somewhat inaccessible by or inconvenient to venture to on foot. Also, it's clearly great exercise!
