Pedal Power

Collected by: Bryan Kinkade
AFAR Staff

If you truly want to 'experience' travel you need to step off the bus and get on pace with the destination. No better way to do that then by adapting to local transport - and for 27% of the worlds population the daily transport is pedal power. Bring a great lock, obey local traffic rules (or lack of) and get beneath the surface the next time you come across a bike for hire.
