Bikes are a popular mode of transportation for many foreign male workers here in Jeddah – females are not allowed to ride bicycles in public because too much of the female form (her behind) would be visible and prove too tempting for any men who might happen to see her riding by on a bike.

About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
