If you think it will be hard to ride a bike in the middle of urban jungle… forget it… and just ride your bike. You need to be prepared for everything: people who don’t like bicycles, cars and drivers in stress, street holes, no park bikes, etc… but at the same time you will get people who share the some feeling of you when cycling, drivers respecting the bicycles and friendly transport links for bikes.
There’s no reason… get your bike, lock, lights, little bag and go into the deep urban jungle and enjoying the freedom.
Do it !!!
