As a general rule, the propensity of non-bicyclists to give biking a try is inversely proportional to the average velocity of the bikers they see on the street. If you live in a city where women in wedge heels are steering their old steel bikes around their daily errand route, there’s really nothing intimidating or scary about the prospect of getting on a bike yourself.

paris87: Bicycling in traffic is a dance you must lead This is pretty spot on… I just wish the music didn’t make me want to gouge my eyes out.

I rented my bike in town for $6, rode to the park and then paid my $20 admission fee (Cambodians get in for free.) I ended up taking the Grand Loop, a 30 kilometer ride around the complex with temples every few…
