Bridges, Infrastructure, Coffee and Remembrance – a Ride Around The City

As well as Sunday being the last day of the official Coffeeneuring 2017 challenge it also marked World Day of Remembrance for Victims of Road Traffic Accidents. In addition to this it is 4 years (and a day) since the Cycle Luxembourg ride that brought together a married couple. With these three things in mind we...

The Cycle-Path of True Love Runs Smooth

Looking for an interesting afternoon meeting new people Andrea joined one of our rides, four years ago. Here is her story… Having been a cycling commuter in the mean streets of London it was natural I would continue to cycle to work once I moved to the more genteel Luxembourg in November 2013. It’s a...

Coffeeneuring Opens – A Coffee Fuelled Group Ride

This weekend the 2017 Coffeeneuring season opens, and to kick it off we are organising a free group social ride on Sunday 15th October. What is Coffeenuering? It is a seven week challenge to ride to a different location every week to enjoy a coffee. It is a simple as that. Invented by the excellent...

Coffeeneuring 2017 – 13th October to 19th November

Picture credit – Chasing Mailboxes What is Coffeeneuring? Put simply it is to search for, and partake of, great coffee on two wheels. Whilst this can take place, of course, all day and every day, Chasing Mailboxes have created a specific challenge to help encourage the uptake of autumnal Coffeeneuring. This year it all starts...

Coffeeneuring – a 7 week challenge

Photo credit : Chasing Mailboxes ALL cyclists drink coffee, right? OK, maybe not all but they seem to go together well; motorists have their black energy-giving liquid and we have ours. This notion brings an intriguing idea from the States, an idea aimed at discovering new routes and new coffee shops. It’s called Coffeeneuring. The...

The Locked Gates Of The City – A Discussion Point

The Locked Gates Of The City Take a compass and take a map. Draw a circle from the City Centre with a radius of what? 10km? 15km? That should be a nice cycle commute, surely? We know that over 40% of employees here in Luxembourg travel in daily from beyond the borders, but a sizeable...

Turning The Pedals

It’s not long into a ride before my friend is fed up with my cheery sing-song Moiens “Moien!” , “tsk”, “Moien!”, “oh no”, “Moien!”, “Please stop!”, “Moiiii – eennn!”, “For goodness sake – SHUT UP” I say “hello” to everyone. To dog walkers, to builders, walkers, workmen, kids out in a crocodile, their teachers; even to (gasp) car drivers....

At least there’ll be great parking: that’ll bring the tourists in.

sn’t Rue Sigefroi a nicer place to be now? To walk, to hang out, to shop, to cycle; to be. And we have the lovely new lift for those down there or those coming from the north, no longer the choice between a brutal climb or a longer ride round to the Grund lift. And...

Petition shows massive support for better bicycle infrastructure in Luxembourg

Pedaling from your flat in Cents to go for a swim in the Coque, going by cargo bike from Neudorf to Kirchberg to do your shopping, cycling from Sandweiler to go to work in the city, or walking from your office on Kirchberg to catch the evening train home to Trier in Hamm? It sounds...
