ALP 2015 [Day 014] - Public cycling!

Striked off cycling on the road from our To-do list after clocking a total mileage of ~40km!

Something interesting - man clearing the grease sludge

So this event is something close to my heart as i worked on this project for a year!

Turns out that this is done manually in China...

School bike rental that made many people turn their heads.

Here's why:

  • Much better condition that the public rental bicycles
  • Nice apple green colour
  • Only 15RMB for full day rental
  • 8 guys cycling in a pack with the same bicycle (how gay is that :D)
First stop is the National Wetland Park! (西溪国家湿地公园)

xixi

Oh yeah treated to a martial arts practice session

After 13km from the school campus, we stopped for lunch! Clearly the air quality is poor that day. (love puns)

Yet another In city.. but a good concept for the outdoor setting at the basement!

Everything down to the finest details. Who said there's nothing to learn/experience in China?

The quote reads:

Instead of thinking about it a thousand times, why not do it once?

Such a unique and innovative idea! Sculpture formed by the melting of wax near the entrance!

While on the road to visit the other ZJU campus, the foot pedal of one bicycle came off! screamsss and that cost us 11.52km just to reach back campus for a @#%&#%*&^ spanner

Sounds like not bringing my multi-tool to china is an oversight...

After some rest and fluids.....time to try again!

This is how poor air quality looks like....

On our way...we passed by the Hangzhou electronics centre

And one of the banner says...

At one of the junction, there's this uncle stopping us with a small hand-held flag... Not everyone obeyed and simply zoomed off...

Another interesting observation:

Seems like no one really cares about vehicles without license plates or plates that doesn't show the number.

The plate reads:

New bike rider, please maintain one car distance

Mobile fruits stall!

Went past the UAD in the campus!

Checking out the canteen and deciding if dinner is going to be settled there..

I like how the old technology still perform a great job! Very simple and elegant design.
