How to Look Cool on a Bike in Shenzhen

Sorry about the delay, folks. The internet has been really picky lately here in the People's Republic, and Work Obligations have really picked up lately.

Excuses, excuses. Where were we? Right. Now that you've rented a bike, what is there to do?

You can put a bunch of stuff on it, of course:

But maybe you should leave that to the styrofoam wranglers of Rubble Street. No, I recommend you head toward the OCT Art Enclave, your typical warehouse-cum-hipsterville full of designer's studios selling found art with birds (or bloody hearts?) on it.

And then pop down to the brand new waterfront greenway! Until the British handed Hong Kong back to China, this area was patrolled by military vehicles to keep people from swimming out of the country. Don't worry, they've got hidden cameras to catch deserters now. This is Jerry, and he helped design it. I think. Regardless, he's cool, even if he does wear a helmet and ride a crazy belt-drive folding bike.

Proper attire is very important:

You'll know you've done it right when others want the moment they were near you to be captured in time and hung upon their mantle!

And try to find this thing, why not.

I have nothing funny to say about this last photo. Enjoy!
