This just in from Cycle Chic Conference 2012: Budapest is Cycle Chic'tastic. Ok, this isn't exactly "just in" as we've gotten to know Budapest for a while now from blogger Aron Halasz' Hungarian Cycle Chic, but last weekend we got to experience this bicycle lovely city firsthand.
The Budapest conference kicked off Friday morning with a breakfast for people cycling on their way to work, which also launched Budapest's bike to work week.
- 7 breakfast stands located in Budapest
- 14 total in Hungary
- 50 kilos of carrot bread at every station
- an equal amount of coffee
- no hungry cyclists in Hungary
Accompanying the breakfast was a photo shoot. With the breakfast right next to the Opera House, it was not a bad backdrop for a photo shoot. Not bad at all.
Many thank yous to János László and the Hungarian Cyclists' Club for arranging the bike breakfast...
And of course to Áron from Budapest Cycle Chic for arranging, well, everything...
Last year's conference was in Barcelona where we hosted the first ever Cycle Chic Breakfast. Meeting all kinds of inspiring people, experiencing all sorts of inspiring cities, and witnessing the bicycle movement happen in cities around the world. Budapest was no exception - it was filled with warm, wonderful, and inspiring moments. That we're going to be blogging the rest of this week :-)
