This bell belongs to the bicycle below… Visit Macro Monday for more pics.
A bicycle parked in our guesthouse. Pedal power is very popular, but there are also many electric bicycles.
When in China, do as the Chinese do… We hired a couple of Flying Pigeon bicycles (Chinese made) for the authentic riding experience. The above was my hired bike with loads of character, but no gear (Beijing is quite flat) and poor brakes. We rode across the city – it was such a scary experience, that I returned my bicycle the next day, and decided to stick to their fantastic subway to get around.
