Operating Shenzhen Bicycles

While staying here in Shenzhen there is the great opportunity to further the research of 'Smarter Than Car' about fading urban bicycle culture in China. The growing collection of portraits and snaps of bicycle livelihoods will allow us to describe the situation in Shenzhen and compare it to the research we previously did in Beijing.
A huge difference in Shenzhen to cities such as Beijing is that the local government stopped to build bicycle lanes about 20 years ago. This is definitely something you perceive within the streetscape, as well as the general absence of bicycle parking in the CBD area and shopping districts. Supposedly the bicycle doesnt fit well with the model of hyper growth in modern Shenzhen.
