Cycling Around The WorldMore common than lycra...
Skeptical? I was too, until I competed reading a recent travel article in the Sydney Morning Herald. Titled “Coasting in good company” the article relates traveler Andrew Bain’s experiences as he cycles through central Vietnam from the former royal capital of Hue to the sunny sands of Nha Trang. As Andrew relates, “Vietnam is a place that seems custom-made to be seen from a bicycle. Classic images of cycling workers wearing conical hats or young girls pedaling through cities in crisp ao dai (the national dress) are more than cliché - they are daily sights. Less commonly seen are sweating, Lycra-clad cyclists on mountain bikes” which probably explains all the attention he receives along the way.
Interested in reading more about his experiences over a nine-day trip? The article can be found at http://www.smh.com.au/travel/coasting-in-good-company-20110317-1bymc.html
