Here in the United States, designers of bike-friendly streets probably don’t spend enough time talking about the biggest of the world’s great bike countries: China. “I’m a big fan of the low fences used in Beijing and other Chinese cities,” reader Charlie writes, pointing us to the photo above. “They are modular and easy to […]
