Too bad for me. I did not read the fine print on the requirements for transporting my bike on the bus, you have to put it in a box, and so I was not allowed to bring it with. I would have really enjoyed being part of enormous bike community of Vienna. I had to tie my bike up at the Florenc bus station in Prague and hope that it would be there in five days when I got back. The good news is buses run out of there twentyfour- seven so it was nice to know there would always be foot traffic around my bike as protection.
They do have the exact same bike rental system as Mexico City. But I did not feel like taking my passport down to one of two offices and getting the card. Vienna is a very big city, my interests were spread all over the place, I did not set up time for a bike rental adventure. So I went for the public transportation, very very easy.
I have to say though I was sad that I didn't get to utilize the lanes for bikes only, created inbetween the sidewalk and streets. I also trekked out to the Museum Gugging, the bike path was almost entirely along the Danube river, but so was the metro/bus so next time I'll get the bike.
We got these bike lanes too. I was very impressed.
Once I got to the Museum Gugging, I relaxed with some beautiful art work. A lot of artists are inspired by public transportation. Hear are a few from the Gugging. This museum exhibits Art Brut. Some of these people ave some training but most of them are psychiatric patients living in hospitals creating art there or at the Gugging itself.
I took a million pictures at this place
Beautiful place, Vienna waits for you and I shall return.
