Beijing plans to revive bikes

There is a nice article about: „Beijing plans to revive bikes for better traffic, blue sky“.

There are so many interesting facts in this article. For example: „The NPC members and members of the National Committee of the CPPCC had suggested that the government should encourage people to use green means of transportation, such as bicycles, while promoting bus transport as a priority. The relevant department of the Municipal Government announced that the development of bicycle transportation had been put on the agenda. Bicycle transportation shall be included in the transportation planning of the city, and by 2015, the proportion of bicyclists shall reach 23%.“ There are then a lot of details listed on what the government is planning to do to encourage cycling in Beijing.

I am very happy about this news and looking forward to a re-birth of the bike culture in Beijing.
