Travel Tuesdays #18: Nine Million Bicycles?



The first bicycle we noticed in Beijing - as we wandered around on our first evening in the city - was this Subway delivery bike parked outside an office block:

We also saw some pretty heavy loads being moved by pedal-power:

But my all-time favourite Beijing bicycle shot is of this little bike repair shop just around the corner from our hotel:

P.S. If you don't know the musical reference of the title, try YouTube.

It makes me feel tired just to look at the guy pedalling the water around. But guess the rickshaw owners have it much worse.
