Day Ninety Three, April 25, 2011

cycling Shanghai streets by night

Bicycles are a staple of Shanghai streets. A big part of the charm of a city like Shanghai comes from its bicycle traffic jams, the multipurpose use of the bikes around the city as a means of transporting anything from a person, a small family, chickens, eggs, to sometimes a whole set of living room furniture. The infrastructure of bicycle is so advanced and complex in this city  and it remains the main means of transportation even with the fast modernization and the increased number of cars that the more well-off people are buying. The day bikes disappear from Shanghai will be the day this great city looses its charm.
