What makes riding a bicycle in China so special and different? Maybe they can tell us.
Misha, student from Ukraine, said I think of bicycles as toys. I rode a bicycle when I was a boy, but after I grew up, I don't ride it any more. Here, I think it's a good traffic tool. In my country, we don't usually ride bicycles, so in the cities, you won't see someone riding a bicycle to work or school.
Steeano Martinia said Italians use bicycles for recreation, not as a traffic tool. Most people ride bicycles at their spare time for fun.
Lee Bomi said South Korea is very small; there are not so many bicycles there. Even in Korea I felt like bicycles were a symbol of China.
In this program we've met all variety of bicycles and their colorful owners and we've learned about what an important role the bicycle plays in Chinese society. But for all the talking that I've done, the bottom line is, you need to come to China, find yourself a bicycle and take her for a ride to be able to really understand the freedom and diversity and enjoyment that has given China it's nickname as the "Bicycle Kingdom."
