I'm Coming By Horse

Here is another interesting story about bicycling in China (read the film makers description below).

Video Description:
Entrepreneurism in action! Spot the lady wearing a snazzy velvet maroon riding hat (on the red moped). This is a common sight in Shanghai where (I presume) a Chinese manufacturer of riding hats for export has created a local market for the same product. They're popular with both men and women and this lady sports a model with a visor.

Ironically, in Chinese, the expression "I'm on my way" translates more literally as "I'm coming by horse" (wo ma shang lai)
