Trendy Youth Tiananmen Square

These two were peddling amongst the throngs during rush hour along Tiananmen Square. Most everyone was riding a sturdy one speed.

Youthful trendiness made this pair stand out from the crowd. The majority of cyclists looked like weary commuters on their way home after a long day at work.

Despite statistics citing 1,000 new cars hitting the street every day bicycles are still a major mode of transport in Beijing.
