Another means of travelling home for Spring New Year.Well....if the authority can secure the road riding safety and the riders pay full attention. This will help those can"t get train or bus tickets. It is okay....May be in the future...make more bike lanes, and small country roads that are more peaceful and safety for motorbikes and bycycles. Another ways for Green and Celebration in Spring Festival.
