    Great Article! I’m in Shanghai for a few months and I just started biking last week. No major accidents yet, but your article covers all the bases when it comes to traffic.

    Oh the joys of biking in China. At first it was quite scary and frustrating but I soon learned to enjoy it. All those obstacles make a really nice “real life” video game and improves your hand-eye coordination quite a bit.

    great post!

    I’m about to buy a bike because I just moved to Shanghai. I’ll make sure to keep your recommendations in mind! When I had a Giant bike in Yangzhou, it was stolen in about 1.5 hours, the time it took for me to eat dinner with my wife in the Living Mall.
