Cycling on the promenade


For the second time, in as many cities, I felt a pang that I did not bring my bicycle with me. People were cycling, skateboarding,  rollerblading,  scootering, walking and jogging up and down the beachfront.  There is even a place hiring bicycles cheaply here (so I may go back again).

It struck me that (unlike Brighton or other places in the UK) there is no segregation. There is no designated lane marked out for cyclists. Pedestrians seemed comfortable sharing the space with others. Cyclists also cannot get annoyed and ring their bell when pedestrians step into their designated lane (as there is none). Everyone was just happily coexisting in the same space.
