Just got back from Brussles (16/09-19/09) everything as normal apart from Sunday...no cars,just taxis,buses and the police and thousands of bikes!!!!!,they where everywhere.

We couldn't find anyone to tell us what was going on?,any clues?(have to say it was really quiet without the traffic!)

It was "car free day" in Brussels. Someone mentioned it last week here on the forum, but I can't recall the thread it was on.
