Market forces

A big increase in bicycles on the roads lately in Tainan, with anecdotes [and Reuters, click the picture] suggesting this is due to gas prices. This city is ideal for bike rides, it's not so big, and many people live downtown. The only drawback is the weather - too hot if you have to be somewhere fast, well-dressed and dry.

It's cool to see market forces in action with such a beneficial outcome.
