Q: Using bicycle in Wuhan is comfortable?

I live in Hanyang, study in Wuchang and I use one bus to arrive to my school. Because often have traffic jam, blocked roads, too many people on the bus, etc., I think about to use bicycle. I don't know if it can be good and comfortable in Wuhan. Any experience?

Never tried it in Wuhan but I've been there once and I don't remember it as being particularly mountainous, so I'd say, yes, try it, especially now that it's not too hot. I wouldn't want to live here without one (here being in Shenyang) even if the winters are far too cold. Start with an average second hand bike, if you're not too tall a 26 inch may suffice and those can be obtained for less than 100 kuai. Good luck.

You study in Wuchang, right? The traffic there is so bad. Do you mean a pedal bicycle, or an electric or gas-powered motorcycle? Regardless, it'll be dangerous with the way people drive in Wuhan.

 

You'd probably be a little safer with an electric motorcycle, but I'm worried about you being smashed up against the recently-installed construction blockades.

Good luck with that, Hell!

Riding a bike is fantastic for balancing an over indulgence in oil, salt, msg and beer...however, it's an express ticket to hell (or heaven, as the case may be) if you're not very, very careful.

Make sure you employ defensive tactics at all times and don't forget that Chinese drivers are incredibly incompetent, inconsiderate and self absorbed.

But the buzz you'll get when you arrive safely at your destination will make the risks well worth it!

Go for it matey!  (Oh, get insurance!)

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
