Antwerp is a bike-friendly city. The distances are not too large, the bike lanes are flat and with the right gear, you can cycle all year round.
Velo is Antwerp's metropolitan bike scheme, where you can pick up and drop off bicycles at various points whenever you like. The small bicycles have three speeds, anti-skid pedals and thick tires, so it’s easier to avoid the tram tracks. In order to ride Velo you have to register beforehand. You can buy a day pass for €4 or a week pass for €10. After purchasing a day of week pass, you can use the bikes for free for a maximum of 30 minutes per session, after which you need to wait at least 5 minutes to take a new bike.
