The New Face of Cycling in China


My photographer friend Matt spotted this teeny cyclist out for a ride in Hangzhou, China during a recent trip he took there. It struck me as utterly cute, and I’d have bought one in a heartbeat. There’s something endearing about a biker wearing kneepads and elbow pads tooling around the ground that makes me think sold.


David, I know Chinese parents who insist on these goofy elbow and knee pads for their children when bike riding, so naturally the kids never ride their bikes. Forgive me that my reaction is the opposite of yours. It’s not utterly cute, it’s utter failure.
