"The Bicycle Kingdom"

In Chinese, the bicycle is called "zì xíng chē". It is also known as "jiăo tà chē" or "dān chē". In Beijing, for example, there are many places that rent out bicycles. Of course, you can very easily buy one as well. Many foreigners who have been in the country for a while or who intend to live here for an extended period of time buy their own bicycles. Riding around Beijing is actually quite safe because there are dedicated bicycle lanes for cyclists. Cycling is a good way to keep fit and it's a quicker alternative to walking. But, of course, anyone thinking of cycling on the main roads should first familiarize himself with the basic road safety rules.
