City Bikes

ponta 310 · May 8

Target Language - English

A city bike is a popular transportation in Japan. It's convenient to go to grocery stores or to pick children up. I often see mothers riding a bike that has baskets in front and rear. They put children and shopping bags in the baskets. To prevent UV, some lady wears a hat, sun visor, and arm covers, which are all black. The sun visor covers the face and looks like a welder's helmet. When I see the ladies riding a city bike, I think they are armored soldiers riding a horse.
