Bike in Traffic

DSCF8023 1 copy
Usually the traffic in Jeddah is horrendous, but when this particular photo was taken, it wasn’t too bad. I think this man was pretty brave to ride his bicycle on one of Jeddah’s busiest streets. I have been told that women are not allowed to ride bikes in public here. It would be pretty difficult riding one in an abaya anyway…

  1. Haha, they can’t drive a car, which is a ‘lot’ more private than a bike.

    Maybe they can drive bikes if you can have a mobile cabana with it.
