Brompton in Beijing

25 October 2009

This was originally posted to the Bromptontalk forum on 30 October 2008.  I have given a more reflective account of the experience of urban cycling in two Chinese cities in a second post called “Anarcho-Communalism in Hangzhou“.

A very satisfying Brompton experience in Beijing.

I had to make a visit some distance from the city centre and my Chinese colleagues were insistent that it’s not feasible by bike, last night coming a similar distance by taxi one of them pointed out how big and intimidating some of the main road junctions were, she rides a bike short distances in the suburbs.
