Bicycles used to be traditional vehicles for Beijing citizens, but with the arrival of “auto society”, bicycles were left behind by Beijing citizens. Bicycles have no exhaust gas and too much noise, thus riding bikes help reduce air and noise pollution. In addition, bicycles are lightweight and small-sized, and don’t take up too much space, which relieve pressure for traffic jam in Beijing. Meanwhile, people can enhance physical condition by riding bicycle. Bicycling makes people get pleasure in it, experience low carbon life and aware the meaning of green environmental protection.
