In China I discovered the pleasures of bike-riding as a regular mode of transportation. I haven't stopped since. There I biked to Chinese class, to explore, to visit friends, to go out partying, shopping, etc. When the bike failed I used a cab, here I use my car, a '98 Volkswagen silver Beetle. It used to be my sister's from her U.F. days. Now its troubles and joys belong to me.
