Folding in BeijingSaturday July 23, 2011
Just got back from a week in Beijing with work. My first time heading East and it was a great experience. There are a lot of bikes there (as suggested by the song by Katie Melua!) and it was good to see that there were quite a few folders.
I’m not sure that I’d want to cycle around the city though. There are wide bicycle lanes but junctions appeared to be a free-for-all at many times with pedestrians and cycles taking pot-luck with encounters with cars and lorries.
But all in all, a great city with very friendly and cheerful people.
