I will be visiting some European City's in May 2010 on a "Holiday Tour", spending a few days in London. Having done my " Tour research work" i was surprised of the cost of hiring a cycle in London, astronomical to we indians, accustomed to the "bicycle" as a "Poor humans transport" or a "Rich humans Hobby" in the 21st century. I have pasted below the "advertisement' of a "Tourist Biking enterprise" in London City for the benifit of fellow cyclists.
I definitely appreciate the value of a cycle and cycling, especially, realising the cheapness of this simple vehicle on Mumbai's congested roads.
