The Bicycle's Big Birthday

This month marks a big milestone for the bicycle.
We've had two hundred years of two-wheeled travel.

The Men Who Brought Bicycles to China
By Erik Crouch
0?wx_fmt=gif
  The first recorded instance of a Chinese person seeing a bicycle is in the spring of 1866. Bin Chun, a diplomat on a political trip to Europe following the end of the Second Opium War, spotted one on the streets of Paris and it made quite an impression.

  “On avenues, people ride on a vehicle with only two wheels, which is held together by a pipe,” Bin Chun wrote in his travel diary. “They sit above this pipe and push forward with movements of their feet. They dash along like galloping horses.”…

   “街衢游人,有只用两轮,贯以短轴,人坐轴上, 足踏机关,轮自转以当车。

  又有只轮贯轴,两足跨轴端,踏动其机,驰行疾于奔马” - 斌椿《乘槎笔记》

被遗忘的自行车王国 Jun 29, 2017

http://www.biketo.com/news/14898.html

编者语:本文转载自腾讯9月17日的图刊,原作者对于中国自行车文化表现出较为悲观的态度。平心而论,在城市高速发展的过程中,自行车确实是最底层的一环,政府对绿色出行的呼吁也还大都停留在口头,但自行车运动在最近几年的快速发展已是毋庸置疑的事实,我们仍会期待某一天,这个“被遗忘的自行车王国”能以另一种方式崛起。

原文:从19世纪末自行车从西方传入中国,成为宫廷贵族的玩具;到20世纪70年代末中国的改革开放,自行车和缝纫机、手表一度成为年轻人结婚必备的三大件;再到80年代,“飞鸽”“永久”是人们理想的交通工具,自行车迅速成为当时中国人最重要、最普及的代步工具。那时每日上下班时壮观的自行车洪流,更是让中国成为外国人眼中的“自行车王国”。

这些自行车好像很新。颜色鲜亮,排列有序。也许不是“坟场”,而是未出工厂?icon_smile.gif

Dandy horse 介绍时看到下面那张照片, 心想:有洋娃娃,原来也有小洋马。
后来一查,就查到了 “洋马儿”, 觉得很有趣。

这种单车共享方式,好像比较盲目,没有从国内实际事况出发。这种热潮不但没解决什么实质性问题,还制造了更多问题。icon_frown.gif

说它是“坟场”,也许不大确切。可以说,它是违规停放的共享单车的收容所。不过,在许多城市,确实有不少共享单车的“坟场”。
