Cycling in Sydney Australia
And now for London
In Cambridge there is stacks and stacks of bikes everywhere and the students and townspeople are using them to go about daily business, but
not that many of the bikes were in good repair. In fact some looked
like total rattletraps that haven't seen chain lube in forever.
In London it was almost a sea of fluro and surprisingly lots and lots of helmets! and so many folding bikes! don't think I've ever seen so many
folding bikes before.
Was so interesting to see how the cities were different. Here in Australia people often paint cycling in Europe
as all sit up and beg bikes, all non cycling clothing, no helmets etc
etc. The reality is much different to what they claim but it's always
nice to see people on bikes all around the world.
This blog post has appeared on my own site http://www.rocketfuel.net.au/1/post/2010/05/a-tale-of-two-cities.html and contains more photographs of both Cambridge and London cyclists. I only added some photos here as I didn't want it to be a whole sea of photos that would take forever to load on the site.
