Bicycles in Kathmandu

One of the most obvious things you notice upon arriving in Kathmandu is the traffic. Cars and taxis and buses and trucks are in abundance everywhere. Then you notice all the motor cycles. It is not uncommon to see fifty or more motor cycles lined up waiting for the traffic lights to turn green. Down every laneway you take your life into your hands if you ignore the ubiquitous motor cycle.

Just as common is the ordinary bicycle. They also seem to be everywhere. Naturally, where there are plenty of bicycles and motor bikes there have to be shops selling and repairing them. In fact, such establishments seemed to outnumber the car sales and repair garages thirty or forty to one. At least, this seemed the ratio in the central parts of the city.
