Q: Is it more efficient to travel with a bike than taxi in 2nd-3rd tier cities?

That's bike or E-electronic bike. The distance is about 12-14 kilometers (1 hour by bus) from the outskirts of my city to downtown (city center). Would it be faster to use a taxi or bike or e-bike and does rush hour make one or the other a better choice? I know during some rush hours I can sit in the back of a cab for 20-30 minutes for just one intersection, so in this case would using an bike or e-bike be any better? how good are e-bikes on battery power...can you run out of battery at the worst times...say the middle of nowhere in a 2nd-3rd tier type city?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
