You are living in Innsbruck? You are either studying or working in the city? So, where’s your bike? Since the city of Innsbruck has optimised its trunk road system, going by bus or even by car is no longer fashionable.
Many of Innsbruck’s students have already learned from Amsterdam’s students and have refused to buy a bus ticket for the coming semester.
Biking has lots of advantages and especially students can benefit. Once purchased scarcely anything has to be paid for maintenance in contrast to the overpriced bus ticket for the IVB. You can get from A to B in almost the same time as by bus. Even better, you can bike along many one-way streets and reach your destination earlier than your buddies in the bus.
At the same time you can enjoy the landscape, you can feel the sun on your skin and the tailwind. Speaking of wind, the best feature for girls with long hair is that the wind of Innsbruck blow-dries your hair and you save electricity at the same time. You see, biking has many advantages but the most important is that you save money and keep in shape. You no longer have to pay a huge amount for the fitness studio. You only have to by an old bike with a damaged gear change and you have to pedale twice as much as with a new and intact bike. Once a day to the university and back home and within three months you are in sape for the summer.
Go ahead and get yourself a bike. Enjoy the landscape, feel the freedom, feel like in Amsterdam.
