Part 2 :Go Green In Beijing-Cycling to work & Shopping

Figure 1 :
Beijing Township- WangFujin. is one of the famous street for bookstores and shopping heaven in the town.

Figure 2:
Old Beijing township name AnDingMeng is well developed for green township. Majority of people are using bicycles or electric bicycles  as their transportation to travel from one place to another destination. Cycling is safe over here and there are plenty of bicycle lanes for them to move around in their old township.

Figure 3: 
Big parking bay for bicycles at strategic location  such as near to Beijing subway station or shopping center (Carrefour) is commonly available in various location. In Malaysia, we are facing insufficient  car parking lots especially near  LRT or KTM station!

How to rent a bicycle ? There are many bicycle renting "vending  machine" for your convenience if you feel to cycle bicycle at other part of Beijing city. Firstly, you need to have a prepaid card (multipurpose "touch n go" card ) which is showing in Figure 5. Paid a deposit of  20Yuan (RM10) for the prepaid card and reload money as much as you like (see Figure 5), you can enjoy convenience of using rental bicycle by just swiping your card on the screen of the front desk bicycle (see Figure 4).

Last but no least, for those who renting bicycle, please do remember to return back the renting bicycle and swipe the multipurpose card after using the bicycle. Penalty will incur on your multipurpose card if you had forgotten to swipe the card in future.

Go for Green Lifestyle in Beijing! Beijing has putting up alot of efforts in promoting green electric tram, electric bicycle, bicycle and super convenience public transport with very low price (RM0.40 for one way trip of shuttle bus and RM1 for a one way trip of subway)
Of course, healthy green lifestyle bring great fitness body shape and slim figure for most of Chinese in Beijing.
Public Transportation in Beijing is excellence. I would say their transportation are seamless and please avoid to use their subway/shuttle bus during peak hour or weekend unless you wanna to have a great feel of become "human sandwich ".
