Woman on a Bicycle

This photograph captures many aspects of life in Beijing that I’ve seen:

  • Bicycle as transportation
  • No bicycle helmets
  • Protective wrapping/plastic kept on as long as possible
  • Disregard of traffic rules
  • Shoes that’ll be worn at the destination also worn during the commute
  • Face-mask for protection against pollutants
  • Large amount of collapsible bicycles

I also think that the number of men and women riding bicycles is pretty similar.
