A Sunny Ride Through the English Garden

The English Garden in Munich is the perfect spot to go for a casual bike ride, lay in the sun with friends & grab a liter in the beer garden. I was lucky enough to make a friend in Stockholm that connected me with her sister in Munich. Felizitas met me with a sweet little cruiser & showed me all around.

Riding in Munich was totally unintimidating, but it is clear that locals don't ride the way Copenhagen, Stockholm & the Netherlands might. I always assumed that city planning was a result of high bike traffic, but it's clear that bike planning is a default in Europe (a lesson we could learn in the states) - even if it isn't a city known for its cycle culture.
