1.Why do you recommend cycling to explore the city around you?


It's better to ride by yourself than to read it a-hundred-times. After reading so many travel notes, it's so beautiful and so far away. If you think about the fortune in your hand, you'd better excavate the beautiful scenery around you first. And it's a relatively familiar environment. You don't have to do complicated homework. You just need to have a bike.


2. How to choose a route?


The ideal route is to find those non trunk road sections with less traffic flow, which is relatively safe and may encounter some small surprises.


Many cities have a river. It's a good experience to ride along the river at night. Of course, it's also fun to brush the streets at night (such as Chang'an Street in Beijing).


3. Shall I have a date to ride with?


Ask the bike shop nearby and join their cycling club. Many bike shops organize cycling activities on weekends. Look for old birds and take you off.


Besides, some people can also take pictures of you.

In addition, money can not be taken, mobile phones must be carried, it can be used for navigation, shopping...  If you like, you can also carry a small backpack to pack snacks, water and so on.

5. What problems might you encounter on the way?


Bicycle is not as easy to break as you think, unless you hit something, or you ride it on the glass, nails. It is also possible to have a flat tire when riding in the city, but the probability is very small. If you want to, you can also bring tire repair equipment.

6. What to do if I get lost?


Many friends who love cycling are actually road crazy. Even if they use mobile phone navigation, they may get lost. Just ask more people. Newsstand owners and grocery store owners are suitable people to ask for directions. But occasionally, there will be surprises if you take a wrong road.


Special reminder: don't ride at night.

7. The road condition is too bad, if there is no non-motorized vehicle lane?

There are always many people who dislike the city they live in. For example, many Guangzhou riders say that Guangzhou city is not suitable for cycling at all. I can only say that it is sentimental! Slow down, I can go everywhere.


However, it is still recommended that you should avoid passing through local bus stations and railway stations during the daytime.


8. What can I do if I can't meet the demand of riding nearby?


We are gradually tired of scenery near our home, and we ride more and more far. At this time,  we can take advantage of public transportation (if you can take a bike).
